Weekend Wanderings: More Birds from the Wetlands

western-wetlands-birds-werribee-water-1042

The last two three weeks have been crazy around here and a private matter has distracted me quite a bit from photography, however, good news and we got a very positive outcome.  Things should go back to normal now, well as much as they can.

So today I thought I would show you more of the birds from the Western Wetlands that I went to a couple of weeks ago with Chris from the blog, sv-takeiteasy. I showed you quite a few last week, but I have some more today, different birds.  I am not going to do a post like usual as all the information about the place was given last week.  I am just going to show you a gallery, and where I can, put the names of the birds as captions.  If I don’t know the name of the bird I will do my best to find out and put it there. If you know what it is, or can see I named one wrong, please let me know and I will fix it.

I hope you have a great Sunday, and relax by taking some photos, it is going to be 36 here again, with the possibility of thunder storms later today, might have to go and take some photos.

  10. I feel like I just went bird watching! You captured such movement and real moments. Really fun to see them all in the gallery. I love the one of so many birds blowing in the wind with the branches, I think it is the 4th in the gallery. There is one bird staring you down so intensely 🙂 And the one with the flipped up wings, is so cool, I don’t know that I have seen a photograph like that before. Looks like you were enjoying yourself, which is great to hear!

    • Thank you Carrie, that is wonderful to hear. I loved trying to get them in flight. Oh you like the sparrows, I love them too, they were so little and so hard to take photos of. I was enjoying myself, it was good fun.

  15. You have some wonderful shots here Leanne, thanks for sharing. For irony, here it is nice and sunny for a change. Yesterday’s snow has pretty much melted and it’s 39 degrees!(F)

    • Thank you John, and as I’m writing this a thunder storm is making itself know outside, it is about to bucket down and get very loud.

    Including some rare flightless ones on slide 33. Very impressive!

    February 23, 2015
    • Oh I don’t know, I really don’t know much about the birds. Sorry. Thanks.

  17. Hi Leanne, sorry I’m so late commenting… hurt my back and feeling a bit sorry for myself! Nice to see more birds from our trip to the wetlands, you have some beautiful shots. I have given you the names of some of the birds, straight on the images as some of them were not quite right. Hope you don’t mind. Chris

    February 23, 2015
    • So you should, hurting your back is terrible, take care and rest it. Thank you and also thank you so much for helping me identify the birds, I’m happy that I got close, I might get good at doing this. Oh, of course I don’t mind, really, thank you so much.
