I was recommended to do some birding in this park- Cattai National Park, as it’s supposed to be an easy drive from Sydney downtown. And thank God it was a pretty straightforward 50 mins drive.
The morning breeze was refreshing and as I drove along the quiet suburbs with beautiful landscapes, it somehow gave me this sublime feeling of loneliness, but yet makes me happy. As I stop to watch some horses, I was interrupted by a loud bird calling repeatedly. It almost felt creepy! I looked up, Oh that’s the Laughing kookaburra! Somehow the bird reminded of the nursery song that I used to sing when I was just a kid!
As I turned, a white and statue-like object on the barn roof caught my eye. It’s a Barn Owl! It seemed to realise his cover was blown and took off very quickly! Hang on! I’ve got an owl in flight photo (pat on the back)!
The drive towards the entrance of the park was truly amazing. The photos below are only some of the many bird photos I have taken before entering the park. They include Little Wattle Bird, Common Kestrel, Rufous Fantail, Yellow Rumped Thornbill, Willie Wagtail, White Throated Treecreeper, etc.
