Too Far Off The Rails   4 comments

Magpie Goose, goose, Mamukala Wetlands, Kakadu, Northern Territory, Australia, flying,

Okay, so apparently yesterday’s image wasn’t to everyone’s taste… bit too far off the rails? Hopefully, this one wins you back a bit!

This is a Magpie Goose flying over the Mamukala Wetlands in Kakadu National Park in the Northern Territory, Australia. For bird enthusiasts, Kakadu is a spectacular destination. The isolation, the greenery, the warmth, the abundant water all make it prime territory for a wide variety of birds.

Places like this one are quiet (except for the occasional bus load of tourists) with lots of bird watching opportunities. Further south, in the thick of the park, there are cruises out on the water ways that will tire out your trigger finger with the number of birds in residence.

  1. Love Kakadu! Great pic, the sky is so amazing in this part of the world.

  2. I liked yesterday’s image and I like today’s. 🙂

  3. Really? Just saw and really like it, and also day before (and today’s). Cheers

  4. Well, I thought the last was in boundary. This one is as great. This isn’t criticism, but what about that bird head? I’m not familar with this type of goose, but that is an odd pink hue (at least to me).
