This blog is ment for presenting one bird at the time. But the top image has several species that is hardly recognizable. Some I have posted before and then the Red-necked Stint that is a new species. So, for this time i make them as ad-on. I had help from the FB site Australian Bird Identification to ID them.

  1. Very neat photo! It's always nice when you see more than one bird at a time and can figure out what they all are! I'm still learning! Hugs!

  2. These are very nice birds - there pied cousins are more common in my neck of the woods.
