Eagle View, Bull Creek, South Australia.

A day indoors with a few birds from the windows.
Australia, Day Fourty Eight.
Well what a day, luckily it was dry whilst Deb and I got the animals fed at the farm and at Deb's Mom's, I was help (or hindering, not sure which) as whilst we were away Ian had slipped on a wet muddy slope and had broken his Ankle / Leg.
Fortunately Petra had stepped in at very short notice to help while we were away but now we were back we got it done just before the very strong winds and rain arrived.
Even though we didn't go off the farm I still managed a few species including Common Bronzewing (Phaps chalcoptera), Crested Pigeon (Ocyphaps lophotes), Red Wattlebird (Anthochaera carunculata), Wedge-tailed Eagle (Aquila audax) and Grey Currawong (Strepera versicolor) were seen whilst feeding.
From the cottage windows during the day I saw Willie-wagtail (Rhipidura leucophrys), Little Raven (Corvus mellori), White-faced Heron (Egretta novaehollandiae), House Sparrow (Passer domesticus), Red-browed Firetail (Neochmia temporalis), Eurasian Blackbird (Turdus merula), Australian Magpie (Gymnorhina tibicen), Grey Shrikethrush (Colluricincla harmonica), White-browed Scrubwren (Sericornis frontalis), New Holland Honeyeater (Phylidonyris novaehollandiae), Little Wattlebird (Anthochaera chrysoptera), Superb Fairywren (Malurus cyaneus), Rainbow Lorikeet (Trichoglossus moluccanus), Crimson Rosella (Platycercus elegans), Sulphur-crested Cockatoo (Cacatua galerita) and lots of Galah's (Eolophus roseicapilla).
