Great Birding Moments #11 Grey Fantail
No Comments »7th September, 2006; Category: Flycatchers
A few days ago we visited the St Kilda Mangrove Trail. After the walk we were standing on the balcony of the Interpretive Centre looking for wrens.
Just as I put the camera away a Grey Fantail flew up to us and landed on the rail only a metre away from me. It stayed there for only a few seconds before flitting off into the mangroves.
The photo above was of another bird taken earlier in the year. That individual was also unco-operative, turning its back on me just at the crucial moment.
One day I’ll get a good photo.
