Willie Wagtail whistles into intruding Kite

Whistling Kite (Haliastur sphenurus) may look menacing in flight above Mungalla Station but ...

... Willie Wagtail (Rhipidura leucophrys) doesn't scare so easily. (Always bet on the black and white bird in any avian conflict: the kite moved on).

Yes, cute shot, Tony. Well done

Last straw too much for Double-barred Finch

Townsville Common Cons. Pk, track to Jacana hide, today. Flew off a second later with lighter load.
