Kind of cute, compared to our toothy opossums. Great shot!

A Grey Heron stork bird, what is this ? anyway, it called in this morning, we've had good rains and I've been away, the grass has grown in patches quite strongly.

Just confirmed that this is a native bird to the area, it is a white faced heron, Egretta novaehollandiae.

Wal, looks similar to our Great Blue herons that I even see in Virginia, but without the white face. Thanks to all for the great photos. I enjoy every one!

Here's a couple more visitors

This bird (Noisy Pitta) flew into the window and stunned itself pretty well. To the point that I could pick it up and place it in a box without it even flapping...after an hour or so it was well enough to fly off again.

post-42-0-84627100-1398401296_thumb.jpg

Another visitor today...this Carpet Snake cruised straight past the missus and I and then climbed up my Capentarias and into the roof, I'm presuming for his winter snooze. He was a decent size ...about 3m (10ft) long and about 100mm (4") thick in the middle.

Hi Daryl, what species palm appears in the last photo in post #136 with the snake? And does anyone have an ID on the snake, this photo is going in Palmpedia, thanks, Ed

Ed, the snake is a Carpet Snake, or Carpet Python (Morelia spilota)...the large trunk in the photo belongs to Carpentaria acuminata and the thinner trunks are Ptychosperma macarthurii

Here's a better shot...

Beautiful native bird shots Daryl.

Heres some native Pacific black ducks on the dam spillway enjoying grains and an Eastern longneck turtle sunbaking on the spillway.

Those ticks are bad. I'm not a huge snake guy, but I kinda want to get them off him. Poor fella. The size of those ticks!

Pete, do you get many of those Rough Scaled snakes at home?

Here's a few Lorikeet photos from this morning...munching on the fruits of my Glochidium sumatranum in the rain...both Scaly Breasted and Rainbow Loris were having a treat!

Yes Daryl, they are common along our small streams and near the edge of the dams as this is their "favoured" place to hang out, they move on when approached like all snakes , except the Brown , but in saying that, when Demi was just 15 yo she was struck twice by a very small rough scale and her hand where she was injected went red and hot "straight away".. Anyway, we rushed her to hospital and Demi was given the "wrong" anti venom ( for a Brown not a Tiger) and we really thought we where going to loose her, her whole body went purple and she puffed up massively over her "entire body". Very, very scary for any parent.

I could "go on" but so, so thankful our darling daughter Demi is alive and well.

Pete :)

Pete. I have read that they pack a punch...you were all very fortunate from the sound of things. No snakebite can be taken lightly. That would have been a very stressful time for you all....glad it all worked out OK.
