a place in the country ...

at Tottenham, N.S.W.

 looking like Hoary-headed Grebe

Pacific Black Ducks?

and over in those bare trees, middle of photo ...

this Yellow-billed Spoonbill



while this one looks to be the Royal Spoonbill perhaps, with seemingly a darker bill

Black Swan



lots of white Paper Daisy growing here

I still can't get used to Tottenham being a rural spot rather than the urban jungle that Tottenham, London is. All those birds have cousins in the UK - grebes, spoonbills, swans - that I'm familiar with. Nice to see the variations down under.

I love the windmills against the blue sky! The black ducks with the white on them make an interesting photo. Always love seeing all your different birds!

Wonderful shots, Carole! I never cease to be amazed at your photography! The Swans are beautiful with their black wings dipped in white!

That first photo looks like it could be the western U.S.! Gorgeous country! I really like the Spoonbill photos! Nice flight shots, too!

Well you have showed me more wonderful country that I would love to explore. I like the flat wide open as far as the eye can see places.
