Here was the 8.30 a.m. meeting point for a small group of birders. It had been showering the night before and earlier on during the morning as I drove on down the coast, and we all were hopeful that the skies would clear up.
Within the next fifteen minutes someone spotted a White-Bellied Sea-Eagle. It was way over the other side of the lagoon there, and being hassled by a crow.
How brave, or indignant of the crow! Gosh, you'd think the beak of a W.B.S-eagle could snap a crows neck in half!
missed getting a shot of this Egret in flight ... before it made it here. I'm forever hopeful of one of those jaw-dropping-extended legs-gliding-in-flight photos!
