Cockies and Robins

Spent the weekend at the in-laws' farm in central Victoria near Lake Eppalock and took an early walk this morning. Very quiet birdwise but did manage to find a few:

A small flock of Galahs spent most of their time feeding in the short grass

but a few sat high in the trees on lookout

This pair of Scarlet Robins proved very difficult to get close to as they flitted back and forth between trees and fence

A pair of Sulphur-crested Cockatoos sat high in the trees outside the cabin

Just after I went inside, they came down to feed right in front of the cabin and allowed me to get some closeups through the window.
