Topknot Pigeons, sighted across the reserve, high in a few tree canopies. Sporting a rather unusual head profile; my Birds of Australia reference reads "Large, drab grey pigeon with ginger crests."
Apart from the more obvious 'five', you can just pick up a sixth bird above them, it's facing left, and the profile of the 'topknot' that projects at the end of the head, is a little more noticeable.
This twining Morning Glory vine is an invasive threat to bushland in Australia where it will smother native plants (though I consider the flower itself really attractive, shame it has this trait)
was said to be nesting hole for Spotted Pardalote; there were a number of these along a dirt/clay ridge
it was easy to 'see' a mythical creature in this mossy-twisted vine
and a pair of White-faced Grey Herons flirted with one another. Later seen in a wonderful theatrical sky-dance, when my camera battery had phased out, just as we were leaving the reserve.
Note: Am back today after a few days away with a great group of birders, explains my not showing at your recent blog posts.
