A variety of long necked, long legged birds seen and photographed recently around the Sunshine Coast.
A morning outing at the Park Lakes Wetlands in Bli Bli allowed me to observe a large flock of Magpie Geese, quite a few of which were roosting high up in some nearby trees.
At the same location a solitary Great Egret shone brightly in the morning light.
As too a small contingent of Cattle Egrets resting safely in the middle of a pond.
At Ewan Maddock Dam a Black-necked Stork treated me to a spectacular fly over. With it's 2.3 metre wingspan it is up there with the Brolga and Australian Pelican as our largest birds.
Low tide on the Mooloolah River at Parrearra allowed for some close views of these two feeding in their own particular manner.
