Bonus photo Good Friday

Funky Centre Place was bustling today, although only a couple of cafes were open.

Bird looking for food in the the Yarra.

Anyone know what sort of bird? Any twitchers among you?


  1. Cormorant, says I with no confidence.

  2. Nice try, but it doesn't look like any of the cormorants photos that Google showed me. I have seen cormorants along the Yarra though (I know that now!).

    I wonder if I googled "blue/grey water bird" whether I would get anywhere...stay tuned...nope. "Melbourne water birds" didn't even yield a single picture of a bird on the first page of results!

    I have a friend who is a sometime twitcher. I'll ask him.

  3. Nice place, and I don't know the bird's name, but it is so pretty..

  4. Could it be ibis bird?
    Scroll to the bottom to see moreof those.

    I´m not a bird expert but one australian blogger, who I forgot now, has those often. At least the beak looks the same.

  5. It sure looks like an egret one seen in the warmer climates of USA!

  6. The offspring ( who is a junior twitcher) has just left so I can't ask him, but tis a nice looking feathered beastie ;)

  7. It looks like a White Faced Heron (Egretta novaehollandiae). There's a nice close-up photo at

  8. I don't know what kind of bird that is, but I really love the shot. I love the composition and the colors!

  9. Howdy Dear GIM:Luv This Photo.Cute Bird (No I Do Not Know It Species)If It Were In The USA It Would Be In Either In The Egret Or Loon Family But In Oz I Would Never Hazard A Guess...
    This Is A Brilliant Capture,From The Composition To The Reflection In The Water...
    Which Is A Big Fave Of Mine As A Subject...Cheers For Sharing All You Do With So Much Heart & Perception...
    Peace Be With You & Yours,In All Ways For All Time...

  10. The first shot reminds me of the ramshackle lanes in old England like in York.
