One of my many interests is birds
One of my many interests is birds -- not just their identification, but their behaviour and how they fit into the complex web of life.
Cape Barren geese, mutton birds and penguins I've already talked about; however, there are many more species on the island that I haven't mentioned.
Today I'll show you Eastern swamp hens; Wood ducks; an Albatross on display at the Penguin Parade; and Sooty oyster catchers fossicking for shellfish on a rocky reef clothed in sea grapes.
