Birdlife Royal National Park

March 02, 2019  •  Leave a Comment

Decided to head down to the Royal National Park recently for a walk and to see what new birds may present themselves. Headed down Lady Carrington drive and almost immediately noticed a group of birds clustered in a fig tree. At the time they were all at the lower branches of the tree but as usual as I approached they quickly moved to the top most branches making the chances of getting a decent shot low, a patient wait however did result in some reasonable photos revealing Satin Bowerbirds enjoying a feed of the figs. I was quite pleased as this was a new species for me to capture, It prompted me to go back over the birds that I have managed to photograph over the years in the park and what a fantastic asset the park is. From Coots and Pelicans to Honeyeaters and Kingfishers the park is home to a wide variety of birdlife, below are a selection of some of the birds I have come across. Click on the thumb nails and it will take you to the larger picture.
