Christmas Greetings and a Christmas Bird List

Christmas Greetings to all my readers.

I hope you had a great day. Here in my part of Australia in was 28C (82F), bright sunshine with not a cloud in the sky and a gentle breeze. It does not get much better than that. We had a quiet Christmas with just a few family members for a Christmas lunch. Didn’t do any serious birding and just casually observed or heard a few birds in the garden or on a short drive.

These common birds included:

  • House Sparrow
  • Common Starling
  • Galah
  • Common Blackbird
  • Australian Magpie
  • Australian Magpie Lark
  • Little Raven
  • New Holland Honeyeater
  • Red Wattlebird
  • Crested Pigeon
  • Spotted Turtledove
  • Willie Wagtail
  • Singing Honeyeater

This is not an amazing list and these species are regularly present in our garden on a daily basis. Overall, I did observe that most birds were rather quiet all day. I guess that many of them were busy celebrating Christmas too.
