Our March birdwalk started well with a Common Bronzewing pigeon wandering around the Angair garden and displaying its iridescent orange/green wing patch when its feathers caught a bit of sunlight.

The walk at Cecil track was was very pleasant, but the tall trees combined with the overcast conditions made it very hard to see the LBJs ( Little Brown Jobs) flitting quietly through the tree crowns.

However Paul Wright got a lovely photo of three Galahs on a branch.


The walk finished with morning tea at the site of the new Parks Victoria camping ground on Woodland Track. There we were entertained by a handsome Enamelled Spider which caught a large blowfly its web, and instantly stunned it and wrapped it for later…yum
