Perth Lakers 3

We were walking past this ornamental lake at Subiaco Common in Perth’s western suburbs yesterday and stopped to look at the birds. It doesn’t look like a very bird friendly lake – all exposed and surrounded by houses.

But we spotted six different species of waterbirds. And they weren’t just a fly in fly out crew. Look at the bottom right hand corner of the photo above. That’s an Australasian Grebe – on the nest!

  1. On ya little Aussie Grebe. Hope she has success. They are so cool to see the young riding on her back the first week or so.
    Normall think of them as being quite hidden and away from people. Such a brave little bird.
