Standing out comes naturally to some



One or two birds go out of their way to help the photographer. But few oblige quite so enthusiastically as White-breasted Woodswallow doing a few stretches atop the Troopy in the Tyto carpark the other morning.

Another species with a habit of standing out is the White-eared Monarch, noted forager of outer foliage. Came upon three together today at the western end of the wetlands. Probably rather scruffy adults and an immature.







Hard for the scores of Willie Wagtails not to stand out. Not so often caught with tail fanned, though they are fantails, not wagtails.
