Birds of Western Australia- Walpole National Park

The exciting bit about staying at Walpole was staying with the Kangaroos!! And of course seeing these wonderful kangaroos at close range was an awesome experience! The cottage was well equipped with cooking utensils and grill! We did a little cooking of our own- we bought steak, chicken wings, olives, cup noodles for dinner and breakfast! Oh yes, we also bought bananas and red wine! 🙂

Waking up to a wet morning where birds hardly chirped could mean a fruitless day!  Fortunately, rain ceased quickly and out came the birds who were eager for their first meal of the day!! Talk about luck!! 🙂  Birds in this area include-

  1. Western Rosella
  2. Scarlet Robin (male and female)
  3. Grey Wagtail
  4. Splendid Fairywren (male in molt, and female)
  5. Golden whistler
  6. Silvereye
  7. Yellow-rumped Thornbill
