Autumn 3 Lake Wendouree

Suzanna asked about this bird, so I thought I had better name them all. They are quite common water birds in Victoria, and generally found on the lake here all year round. 

Walking around the lake after a few days of welcome rain. This is a purple swamp hen.

Pacific black ducks.

Australian black swan.

Somehow I missed the last two posts...I love seeing the birds...such colorful beaks they have...what do you call the blue one?

Hi Suzanna, I've added the names of the birds to the post. Should have done it in the first place. how was the rio trip? I seem to have great trouble leaving comments lately!

Hi Elizabeth, Thanks so much for the names...they are such elegant creatures. I'm still on the trip about to head home. Glad you're back to blogging and hope you'll be feeling better soon. Love the quilt! When I get home maybe I can figure out why commenting is problematical. Blogger sometimes changes things around without telling us.
