Know Your Bird Series: 13th August, 2018

Another great moment captured by our beloved birdman @singhajad

This bird has a unique defense strategy against predators! It simply signals to the predator that it’s been spotted!

Why does this bird do that? 
If the prey communicates its awareness of the predator’s presence, the predator may be less likely to attempt a pursuit!

How smart is that! :) Can you guess which bird this is? 
This bird is the Grey-headed Swamphen with its breathtaking colours! 
To communicate with the predator -- it brings attention to its conspicuous rump patch by flicking its tail up and down rapidly! [KYB/02/2018]

It’s been an awesome few days exploring Little Desert National Park in the troopy, but we’re on our way home now so it’s time to get some posts up! 
For now here’s a shot of a Purple Swanphen hiding amongst the reeds in some nice light; I really like the colours and out of focus highlights in this image.
There’ll be a couple of Little Desert shots coming soon!

Purple swamp hen #swamphen #purpleswamphen #oaklandsreserve #oaklands #marion  Oaklands Wetland is home to many different species of animals including parrots, ducks, cockatoos and wader birds such as spoonbills, ibis and gulls. Fish and frogs live in the wetland, plus many different types of insects like dragonflies and mayflies.  Majestic, old river red gums (Eucalyptus camaldulensis) and 85,000 new plants play an important role creating habitat for our wildlife.  The wetland is located in Oaklands Wetland and Reserve at 237-265 Oaklands Road in Oaklands Park; adjacent to the Warradale Army Barracks and across the road from the Marion Outdoor Pool.  #oaklandswetlands #marioncouncil #cityofmarion @cityofmarion #wetlands #reserve #naturalhabitat #habitat #environment #thegreatoutdoors #getoutstayout #getoutside #beactive #outdoorsisfree #nativespecies #adelaide #southaustralia 29.07.18

Purple Swamphens are commonly seen in and around wetlands, including urban wetlands like these. For those who missed my insta story yesterday, these birds obviously get fed regularly as they were not at all shy! I had to drop my big lens/camera and shoot this on my second body with a 50mm prime lens!
Yesterday evening provided this beautiful light across the wetlands, and I was happy to snag a few nice images - more to come

@sniperdesboispascal ❤❤❤❤👌

A Purple Swamp Hen in a tree. Obvious title aside, we have a lot of these birds in our yard looking for food. They live on my neighbour’s property, near one of several dams, but this season they are spending a lot of time here. It is up in the tree overlooking a host of wild birds eating grain. Once the other birds have picked through and scattered the grains, the swamp hen will leave the tree and feast on the left overs.
