The everyday of our family farm
A long bill--- Nice catch. Rather like a plover, I'd guess.
We have a couple of Pipits on the Island and the only way to tell the difference easily is the length of the rear claw.
The pipit is a master of disguise. I've been waiting for a bird post from you to ask about the Golden Plains Warbler. I understand it is fairly rare and has a limited habitat but I'm curious to know whether it has been found in your area or whether it is on your bird list?Alphie
I have not heard of the Golden Plains Warbler, did you mean the Plains-wanderer? If so then no, not in our area Alphie. The wanderer has been seen about 200kms further north. Oolambeyan National Park at Carrathool was a 55,000 acre sheep farm before it was purchased by the state government in 2001 with the purpose to protect a significant area of native lowland grassland & the habitat of the Plains-wanderer.
You did very well to get the Pipit's photo. I love the sprinkling of green shoots through the brown.
