New bird photos in Pinkerton Forest

Four new bird species were photographed at the water trough in Pinkerton Forest
Sacred Kingfisher
Brown-headed Honeyeater
Jacky Winter
Rufous Whistler
Black-faced Cuckoo-shrike
New Holland Honeyeater
The Sacred Kingfisher & the Brown-headed Honeyeater visited the water trough over several days. The Brown-headed Honeyeaters seemed to enjoy the company of the White-plumed Honeyeaters. The Kingfisher didn’t seem to mind what other birds were there. On a few occsaions it disappeared into the trough. It pulled long lengths of algae from the water on a couple of occasions. Perhaps there were insects in the algae. We’ll have to have a closer look at what is in the water
All of these have been recorded from Pinkerton Forest but it is good to get a photographic record
The Boobook Owl also returned to bathe over several nights
