Our holiday in Victoria

September 2007

The Ibis rookery just out of Kerang in northern Victoria has a well appointed bird hide, complete with a very good telescope. This birding hot spot is always worth a visit, and every time we drive through this area I plan to stop there, have a cup of tea and do a spot of birding. Literally thousands of Straw-necked and White Ibis roost and nest in this area, along with a good range of other waterbirds, such as Purple Swamphens, Pelicans, Egrets, Herons and a range of bush birds and birds of prey like eagles, hawks and kites.
