Sat 10highlightSuperb Fruit-dove
Tinchi Tamba Wetlands Reserve
Brief look at two birds this morning and at first thought they were the Rose-crowned fruit-doves that have been seen there recently. It wasn't till we had a chance to look at the photos that we realised the bird we looked at was a male Superb Fruit-dove. Seen opposite 255 Wyampa Rd just north of the rock pile area. eBird checklist
