Point the first: Cradle Mountain has a lot of birdlife. Point the second: they’re hard to photograph with a mainstream camera. Except the currawongs. They’re easy.
Also ubiquitous, but at the opposite end of the photo ease spectrum, were the many LBBs (little brown birds, actually used as a technical term in some areas of ornithology).
The speedy LBBs were tentitively identified as brown thornbills, Tasmanian thornbills, dusky robins and scrubtits.
But it’s hard to tell.
Bigger birds were a grey butcherbird, a green rosella, forest ravens and the largest bird in Tasmania, a wedge-tailed eagle.
Colourful blue wrens, pink and flame robins rounded out the birds.
Birdwatching / photography is frustrating for me because I am fairly terrible at it but I can’t help trying anyway. Any hints (beside getting an expensive camera, I can’t afford that at the moment)?
