Gluepot Bird Reserve part 2 – reptiles

On my visit last year to the Gluepot Bird Reserve owned and run by Birds Australia I spent a whole day driving and walking the various tracks and walking trails. I didn’t have time to walk all of the tracks so I must return sometime later this year.

The reserve has been especially set aside to protect a large number of threatened and endangered species of bird. Birds like the Black-Eared Miner, a honeyeater, are relatively common in the reserve but elsewhere are very rare. Scarlet-Chested Parrots are also hard to find in other places.

The habitat suitable for these birds is also very good for a range of other species. The flora is particularly interesting and so is the insect and reptile life. The two photos featured on this posting are of two Bearded Dragons, a lizard species, I encountered that day. They were quite accommodating, posing beautifully for me while I took a series of photos.
