Beautiful Brolga's..........

More uncommon wildlife..................on the way to work one day a few weeks ago these Brolga's were in one of the paddocks...........
stunning tall birds............3 here.........
then a few days later we saw these less the a kilometre from where we saw the others............not sure if they are the same ones missing a friend or a different pair.................
We are lucky to see them once a year............

Catch you later..............

  3. They are beautiful. We have the Sandhill cranes here, which are similar and I get excited each time I see them. They are awesome.

  7. Beautiful! What a treat to see such wildlife now and then. I've never heard of a Brolga, but they look a lot like the blue herons that we see around here sometimes. They are a very tall bird with a huge wingspan and are lovely to watch when they fly.

    Thanks for sharing them with us!

  14. Beautiful birds -- how fortunate you got to see them.

    Sweetie and I went down toward the coast a few years ago -- saw a field with something funny grazing -- looked like brown sheep. However, we got closer and found that they were actually Sandhill Cranes with their heads down (we were seeing them from the back.) It was a thrill because we never expected such a treat!
