Crimson Chat (male)
Epthianura tricolor

October 20th, 2019
Lake Tyrrell, Sea Lake, Victoria, Australia

Canon EOS 1D X Mark II
Canon EF 600mm f4L IS II USM lens
Canon EF 1.4x III Extender

Happy to come away with a reasonable image of this species after a couple of sessions at Lake Tyrell. There was no shortage of these chats (as well as their Orange & White-fronted cousins), but getting a decent image was a tough proposition! This particular male was busily feeding a youngster.

Pink Robin (male)
Petroica rodinogaster

Beechy Forrest, Victoria, Australia

One of the highlights of the year was finally having the opportunity to photograph this brilliantly coloured species! This somewhat elusive species breed in dark, densely vegetated gullies in moist eucalypt forests or cool temperate rainforests, which can make photography very tricky! However, this little beauty & his mate have made their home at the base of a waterfall in the Otway Ranges which allows enough natural light through the forest canopy to produce some really nice images. Despite fracturing my wrist after a fall, nothing was going to dampen my spirits after photographing this little stunner!

Red-necked Stint
Calidris ruficollis

January 2nd, 2020
Werribee, Victoria, Australia

Canon EOS 1D X Mark II
Canon EF 600mm f4L IS II USM lens

These tiny waders always seem to be on the move, racing around the shallow waters edge feeding, often in large flocks of hundreds of birds. It can sometimes be a challenge to isolate a single bird, but as the flock fans out every now & then a trailblazer will provide an opportunity.

One of my favourite things about visiting Cape Paterson is there are several pairs of Hooded Plovers along most of the beaches. I particularly like exploring the reefs as they make for such interesting surroundings.
