The critters were kind enough to let us (Yours Truly and Wifey-Poo) wander through their home and partake of some sustenance while there. No, we didn't partake of the critters... Just wouldn't seem right to invade their home and then eat them. They were scrawny anyways.
Have I mentioned that there are a LOT of birds down here? Pretty much wherever you go you'll find (and hear) birdses. Naturally, when you break out your picnic lunch there tends to be an exponential increase in the number of them.
This bloke here is a Black-faced miner bird, or a noisy miner. They are a type of honey-eater but they also eat bugs and anything the hairless apes happen to drop on the ground after their picnic.
I have a much, much, muchly betterer picture of one of them. Give me a sec and I'll find it...
Found it! Here ya go:
Next up is an Aussie Magpie. I don't have too many shots of these blokes. It'd be easy to get pics of them as they are EVERYWHERE!
It turns out we had set up camp right next a blue gum that a koala was sleeping in. He was sooooo cute!
Later on s/he had turned around and I got a pic from right below.
As we were leaving, there were 5 kangaroos crossing the road and hanging out in the grass and trees. 3 momma roos and two young joeys. In fact, one of the joeys was so young he wasn't even peeking out of momma's pouch. But the other one was hopping around like mad --fast lil bugga.
This last pic was the best I could get of the little bouncy bundle of joy. This guy just would NOT stay still. Nor would he move slowly. He had two speeds: hyperactive and full stop.
We had fish for dinner that night, BTW.
