Kinda variegated fairy-wren
As I had not ticked this species in our area and I was kinda keen to add it to my bird list.
Bins, camera, tripod loaded into the back of the car and the dog left kinda sulking on the verandah, I drove to the location north of town. My search started at the top of the track and it didn’t take long for me to get a sight of a flash of colour in a distant bush. I thought that it was strange that this normally flighty bird was so still.
I was kinda amused but also kinda amazed that someone had gone to so much trouble. I would kinda like to know if I was the only one to be so soundly tricked. Who would go to so much trouble?
