As soon as we parked our car, we saw these two little birds. Thanks to the informative display, I managed to identify the one on the right as a crimson rosella. Any ideas on the one on the left?
As I was getting caught up photographing the two, I didn't even notice this little one perched on the tree until hubby said, "Erm, you know there's a huge bird right next to you right?" It was such a pretty and docile-looking creature!
As it flew even closer, I managed to capture some details of its beautiful feathers. Just look at the colours and textures!
We decided to take the chance to explore the area a little. We reached Badger Weir via Lyrebird Track and returned to the carpark via Slip Creek Track. We didn't manage to spot a lyrebird even though I was keeping my eyes peeled for one. We might have heard one call, who knows? The walk was very pleasant, we were surrounded by cool, damp air and the sounds of nature.
This place would be a beautiful place for a picnic (try to snag the seats at the rotunda!). I would definitely recommend going in the early morning before it gets too crowded and hot!
