Birds (IV) - Lake Monger

Upon knowing that Lake Monger is a good spot to watch birds, I returned a week after my first visit. A really nice surprise was seeing a shy Australia White Ibis (Threskiornis molucca). This bird is common around Perth according to "Guide to the wildlife of the Perth region". But they must be hiding from me wherever I go!

I was quite happy that finally I managed to get some decent shots of the Eurasian coot (Fulica atra).

Black swans (Cygnus atratus) are really interesting to photograph. They are also large enough to photograph from a distance despite the limited zoom power of my camera.

I also found a banded black swan.
My guess is the swan is taking part in someone's experiments.
