Today we introduce you to a familiar bird: the White-faced Heron (Egretta noveahollandiae). This elegant wader is a skilled hunter and is the wonderful subject for our #49 Bird Photography Challenge.
A large white wader with a distinctive black bill, the Royal Spoonbill (Platalea regia) is vulnerable in Victoria, so it was a treat to spot several in the wild. This odd looking but stately waterbird is the subject of our #45 Bird Photography Challenge.
The bar-tailed Godwit (Limosa lapponica) is a migratory shorebird which can fly further than any other known bird. This long distance flyer is the subject of our #40 Bird Photography Challenge.
