User's notes

A family group - mum, dad, and juvenile calling continually as they ate their way through the casuarinas. I was stunned by the shifting beauty of their feathers, and the tiny slice of red on the back of the female's tail. Seen at the same time as sighting #4259982

Thank you! I was so grateful and relieved to see them after the fires - and to be so near to them.
