Mindre skrik?

Idag såg jag denna örn ifrån tomten. Hela uppenbarelsen "skrek" mindre skrik, trots att jag aldrig sett en sådan tidigare. Dock åtskilliga större och stäpp, t.ex. Bilderna visar i mitt tycke mycket som talar för just mindre skrik och egentligen inget som talar emot. Dock är det ju suddiga bilder...


Bättre än så här blev det inte tyvärr. Inte så mycket bättre än det jag fotograferade direkt ifrån kamerans skärm.
Samma foto som förra fast utzoomat så att den röda gladan syns i samma fält. Detta ger en bra blick över storleken på fågeln då de skruvade tillsammans.
Nästan likadan bild som förra. Ev. kan man se handpennorna, jag får dem till 6 stycken isf. men det är kanske för suddigt för att vara säker.
Samma bild som förra fast utzoomad igen. Två röda glador för jämförelse.
Sista bilden visar hela skruven med tre glador, en brun kärrhök (uppe till höger) och örnen längst ned.

Croatian birds - July 2016

The regular summer trip to Croatia. Some birds from this trip but as it was in July, it is not that easy to see or hear them at all times. For example, the Subalpine Warbler is very difficult in July while in May you can hear them in many places. At least in Gajac, Pag, where we stay. A perk of being there in July is that there are often a large flock of Bee-eaters around. I just don't get tired of seeing these beautiful birds.

We started off in Austria so the first photo is obviously from the Austrian Alps. I don't know if there are any Alpine Coughs in Croatia.

I managed to see a couple of lifers, even though we went there in July. The lake Vransko Jezero was nice, but I would definitely want to go there in May/June instead. I bet that would be a great time to visit. The three Little Bitterns I managed to see were really nice, though.  A hike in the Velebit gave me some new species on my Croatia list and the Rock Bunting was also a new lifer. No photos of this species though as the hike took some time and my shoulder got tired. We didn't find the right way until after a couple of hours so I left the camera in the car.

At the bottom I have written a list of some of the more interesting species I managed to see during these two weeks.

Birds on Lady Musgrave Reef - Dec 2016

On Christmas Eve, which is when us Swedes celebrate christmas, we had booked a trip to the Great Barrier Reef - Lady Musgrave Reef. Here are some photos from that trip. As you can see, there are no photos from the boat ride... It was a bisarre experience, to say the least. About two thirds of the passanger threw up during the course from Bundaberg (or rather Burnett heads) to the reef. I managed to keep the bile down but it was not a pleasant boat ride. Though, if I had the chance I would definitely do it again. 

The reef is surely a paradise and well worth a visit. The guides weren't very good at the birds but if you've done your homework it doesn't matter. There aren't that many species around. Though I guess one might be more lucky than I was.

Some photos of the birds of the reef:


Black Noddy (svart noddy, Anous minutus)
Wedge-tailed Shearwater (kilstjärtslira, Puffinus pacificus)
Buff-banded Rail (rostbandad rall, Gallirallus philippensis)
Bridled Tern (tygeltärna, Onychoprion anaethetus)
Black-naped Tern (svartnackad tärna, Sterna sumatrana)
Apart from the flock of Black-naped Terns there are at least four other species in this photo, though some are really hard to see. The Pacific Reef Heron and the Sooty Oystercatcher are easy, the two Ruddy turnstones are more difficult and the two Pacific Golden Plovers almost require a magnifying glass... 😏
Sooty Oystercatcher (sotstrandskata, Haematopus fuliginosus)
Unknown Tattler in the center of the photo
Pacific Reef Heron (korallhäger, Egretta sacra), dark morph.
I think my book said "Eastern Reef Egret" but it should be the same species anyway... The name is taken from the official Swedish list of bird names.
Pacific Reef Heron (korallhäger, Egretta sacra), white and
dark morph together
Greater Crested Tern (tofstärna, Thalasseus bergii) and
Lesser Crested Tern (iltärna, Thalasseus bengalensis)
I was quite happy with this photo, which shows the difference between the two crested terns quite clearly. You have the difference in size, the colour difference of the bill and also the difference in wing tone. Though the Lesser Crested to the right shows a darker tone than normally, in this photo probably due to the angle.
Black-naped Tern (svartnackad tärna, Sterna sumatrana)
Bridled Tern (tygeltärna, Onychoprion anaethetus)
Brown Booby (brun sula, Sula leucogaster)
List of birds seen on Lady Musgrave Reef and during the jurney to and from the reef (new lifers marked with *):

Black Noddy (svart noddy, Anous minutus) *
Wedge-tailed Shearwater (kilstjärtslira, Puffinus pacificus) *
Brown Booby (brun sula, Sula leucogaster)
Silver Gull (silvermås, Chroicocephalus novaehollandiae)
Buff-banded Rail (rostbandad rall, Gallirallus philippensis) *
Ruddy Turnstone (roskarl, Arenaria interpres)
Sooty Oystercatcher (sotstrandskata, Haematopus fuliginosus) *
Greater Crested Tern (tofstärna, Thalasseus bergii)
Lesser Crested Tern (iltärna, Thalasseus bengalensis)
Black-naped Tern (svartnackad tärna, Sterna sumatrana) *
Pacific Reef Heron (korallhäger, Egretta sacra) *
Common Greenshank (gluttsnäppa, Tringa nebularia)
Bridled Tern (tygeltärna, Onychoprion anaethetus)

In addition to these species, I also saw a Tattler - probably Grey-tailed but I didn't hear the call so virtually impossible to tell. While checking the photos afterwards, I found at least two Pacific Golden Plovers in the photo above with the flying Black-naped. I did see quite a few both of the Tattler and the Golden Plovers a few days later. That'll be another blogpost...

Sunshine coast and the sunshine coast hinterland - Dec. 2016

The day I had looked forward to the most was here... Before going to Australia, I had contacted Greg Roberts, a local birder (check out his blog here) and set up a day for birding in the area around Noosa. Lets just say that Greg knew the birding sites in this region very well, not to mention his knowledge of the birds... Fantastic guide.

This tour took place just three days in during our stay in Australia and even though I had, at this time, already seen almost 50 new species and gotten to know some of them pretty well, I soon experienced the same overwhelming feeling I had during my day in Singapore. When you are so reliant of your hearing, as I am in Sweden, it's so frustrating when you cannot filter out the common birds by just listening to them. Here, every sound was new - except from the Noisy Miner and the Rainbow Lorikeet... Both common and very noisy everywhere.

From the very start, we were checking habitats which were quite different from Noosa and the surroundings and the birds were also mostly different. Actually, the first animal we stopped to check for was not a bird. We had agreed to meet quite early - at just after 04:00 if I remeber correctly (it's been almost half a year since this day, now when I'm writing this). We drove to a creek to see if we could the Platypus. It had been a request from me in our discussions of the day, before I left for Australia. We did manage to see the Platypus, there were actually two of them. Unfortunately, I could not really concentrate on looking at the Platypus as there were birds all around. Tawny Grassbirds, Cicadabird, Rainbow Beeater, Peaceful Dove etc. So much to see at one time. 

Below I have put some photos from this day. The site names are in many cases made up by me and quite a few sites, I were unable to find when checking google maps afterwords. In any case, if anyone is interested in where these sites are, I would suggest checking the iGoTerra website - www.igoterra.com where I have entered my sightings. Or send me a question here in the blog and I will help.

First out is the litte creek where we saw the Platypus. I did manage to find it in Google maps and I've called the place:

Moy Pocket - Mary River
Tawny Grassbird (rostgräsfågel, Megalurus timoriensis)
As I've written above, we saw and heard more than just this Tawny Grassbird but while trying to concentrate on the Platypus, my focus was not at taking photos at this point. The only other bird i shot here was an Azure Kingfisher, but the photo didn't quite make the cut...
Conondale NP - Charlie Moreland campground:
We covered quite a few different sub sites here in Conondale NP. Lots of birds and a fantastic experience as the nature is so very different from Sweden. Most of the time at least... Just seeing the Red-necked Pademelons was so fundamentaly different from anything you can experience in Sweden. In my opinion...
Wompoo Fruit Dove (wompoofruktduva, Ptilinopus magnificus)
Wonga Pigeon (wongaduva, Leucosarcia melanoleuca)
Sulphur-crested Cockatoo (större gultofskakadua, Cacatua
galerita)
I shot this photo as the scenery is quite like what you can see in Sweden, with pines lining the hills. However, if I saw a white bird like that, I would be excited indeed. It would probably be a Snowy Owl, as there are few truly white birds in Sweden. So, this sight is something I would never see back home.
Spectacled Monarch (svartmaskad monark, Symposiachrus 
trivirgatus)
There are many examples of "name switches" between English and Swedish, such as Wood Sandpiper being "Greenshank" - in Swedish and Green Sandpiper being "Wood Sandpiper - in Swedish. Here is another where the Swedish name of Spectacled Monarch is "Black-masked Monarch" and Black-faced Monarch is "Spectacled monarch". It makes birding confusing sometimes...
Australian Golden Whistler (guldvisslare, Pachycephala 
pectoralis)
Spangled Drongo (glitterdrongo, Dicrurus bracteatus)
Oriental Dollarbird (rödnäbbad blåkråka, Eurystomus 
orientalis)
Red-necked Pademelon (rödhalsad buskkänguru, Thylogale
thetis)
These were so cute! You just wanted to reach out and hug them. :-)
Rufous Fantail (rostgumpad solfjäderstjärt, Rhipidura 
rufifrons)
Fantastic bird! Very charming and quite common, in the right habitat. I couldn't really get enough of them.
Australian Logrunner (australisk marksmyg, Orthonyx 
temminckii)
Before going on a trip like this, you build up some expectations of what it will be like during the trip. One of these expectations was that the Logrunner would be a very difficult bird to see. i don't really know why that idea formed in my head but it was there... and of course that meant that the Logrunner was one of the species that I wanted to see the most. I was really excited when we found this one.
I had to work on really high ISO setting but the photo turned out ok.
Spectacled Monarch (svartmaskad monark, Symposiachrus 
trivirgatus)
Varied Triller (vitbrynad drillfågel, Lalage leucomela)
This bird was a perfect example of my "birding naïveté"... When we found it, it was somewhat difficult to see. Greg heard it but we couldn't find it. So when I finally found it I was going: "There it is, look!!" and Greg just answered "Well, don't show it to me, I have them in my garden". 😃😃😃
I also managed to see the species a couple of more times during the trip.
Noisy Pitta (larmjuveltrast, Pitta versicolor)
Another of the species I really wanted to see. I had expected to have more of a chance in Singapore, where there are three species, but we didn't have enough time there.

This is actually a pretty decent shot of the bird. It is showing just how we saw it. Not that easy to find. First it came flying just beside us but after some searching we could find it perching on a branch some 20m away.
Rose-crowned Fruit Dove (rosenkronad fruktduva, Ptilinopus 
regina)
Olive-backed Oriole (grönryggig gylling, Oriolus sagittatus)

Wappa Dam
Of course we saw a lot of other birds in Wappa Dam than the Masked Lapwing, but I have just added the photos that I like. At the bottom of this post, there is a list of new birds at each site. So here I could add e.g. Intermediate Egret and Bar-shouldered Dove to my list.

The most special bird here was probably the Great Crested Grebe. But since these are very common in Sweden (I often see 50-100 individuals from my garden in the spring) I was not really excited...
Masked Lapwing (maskvipa, Vanellus miles)

Burtons Rd
Now we are down from the mountains and out on the coastal plains. Different birds altogether.
Golden-headed Cisticola (gyllencistikola, Cisticola exilis)
Golden-headed Cisticola (gyllencistikola, Cisticola exilis)
Eastern Cattle Egret (orientkohäger, Bubulcus coromandus)
At this time, I didn't know that this Cattle Egret was split from the Eurasian one. But it is certainly more coloured than what I normally see in Europe.

White-cheeked Honeyeater (vitkindad honungsfågel,

Black Swan (svart svan, Cygnus atratus)
Australian White Ibis (australisk ibis, Threskiornis moluccus)
Magpie Goose (skatgås, Anseranas semipalmata)
Restless Flycatcher (rastlös monark, Myiagra inquieta)
Hardhead (australisk dykand, Aythya australis)
Dusky Moorhen (mörk rörhöna, Gallinula tenebrosa)
Australasian Darter (australisk ormhalsfågel, Anhinga 
novaehollandiae)
Comb-crested Jacana (kamjaçana, Irediparra gallinacea)
White-headed Pigeon (vithuvad duva, Columba leucomela)
Again, I have to say that this was a fantastic day. Absolutely among top five birding days in my life. Thank you Greg for fantastic guiding and so many interesting anecdotes during the day. I can't wait to get back to these areas and do some more birding. Over 100 species during the day... My mind was pretty blown away afterwards and I had trouble sleeping that night (dispite the early start) due to all the impressions during the day.
