Doongalla Homestead Reserve - videos of Crimson Rosella in tree hollow, Yellow-tailed Black Cockatoos and Eastern Yellow Robin

Today our family went with our cousins and aunties and uncles, grandma and grandad and great aunties and uncle and my 100 year old great grandmother (Greatie) to a place in the hills on the outskirts of Melbourne in a suburb called The Basin. We went to a place to have lunch, and there were picnic tables, but it was very hilly. I found some lovely birds there. I love the colours of Crimson Rosellas and I found these ones going in and out of a tree hollow near the ground near one of the car parks:

I also saw these Yellow-tailed Black Cockatoos while walking along the road with my Uncle Pete and Dad


And this little Eastern Yellow Robin was in a tree by one of the tracks when my Dad and I went for a walk

Video of Arafura Fantail pair building a nest

My brother, Dad and I saw these Arafura Fantails at Mamukala Wetlands in Kakadu NP building a nest. We sat and waited for them to come back to their nest for quite some time. This is the best video I took. I hope you like it.

Video of Red-collared Rainbow Lorikeets at Batchelor - beautiful colours, lovely steady video

At the caravan park we are staying at, the manager feeds the Galahs and Little Corellas each morning and afternoon. Sometimes, the Red-collared Rainbow Lorikeets come too. Yesterday afternoon they were flying around but didn't come to feed. This morning though, I waited for nearly two hours. Below is a Youtube video of some of the best videos I have ever taken of birds. I think you will agree after watching, these birds really are stunning. I hope you enjoy the video.

Orange-footed Scrubfowl in Darwin video

I saw this Orange-footed Scrubfowl early this morning when my brother and I were going to the toilet from our caravan. When we came back, dad said he'd seen it too and I followed it with my camera to a nearby garden. I hope you enjoy the video.

Video of Owlet-Nightjar during the day

My brother, dad and I are on a trip to Darwin, Litchfield, Mary River/Kakadu and spent the first night at Lake Woods, near Elliott. After we woke up in the morning, dad packed up our van while my brother and I went bird-watching, he went one way and I went another. I was taking a video of some pelicans when I noticed a Wedge-tailed Eagle. It flew over some trees and I went to follow it. I was in the trees when this thing brushed my shoulder and sat on a branch about 5 steps away from me. It turned out to be a little Owlet-Nightjar, a lifer for me. I hope you enjoy the video.

Finke Desert Race 2013 Prologue, Car 576 rollover

I was watching the Prologue at the Finke Desert Race this year with my mum and some of my friends. I had my video camera with me and my friends and I thought the jump was awesome and then the car did a rollover which was even better! I hope you enjoy the video.

Black Kite in the back yard with a Crow chasing it off a branch

Yesterday, dad and I went out to the park through the back fence and watched a lot of Black Kites and a few Whistling Kites circling around our place and the park. In this video, a Black Kite swoops in and perches on a branch, has a bit of a look around, and then is chased off by a Little Crow. I hope you enjoy the video.
