Whistling Kite

A former quarry and dump, Putta Bucca Wetlands is now slowly developing into a recognized bird habitat, close to Mudgee township.

Great photos of the Whistling Kite and it's good to know that a "mess" like a dump can be transformed into a wetland.

Putta Bucca!!! What a name. I guess this one was easy to see although he is well camouflaged.
