...more Griffith, NSW

Major Mitchell's Cockatoo
This was one of my top target birds for the trip - in fact since I became aware of Australian birds. Seven took up from a tree in the Griffith golf course, circled the airport, where I was, and returned to the golf course. Three more MMCs where seen later at the town lookout.

Blue Bonnet
I had my first two encounters of Blue Bonnets today. A family group of five were around the golf course and airport and two pairs further along the road - past the helicopter place onto the gravel road.

Apostlebirds - two of 15.

Great picture of the MMC. Love the light through the wing. Nice bird.
