Western Australia Day 18

A family visit to Serpentine Falls and Dam located in the Darling Range to the east of Perth produced three new lifers, Golden Whistler, Wedge-tailed Eagle and Red-tailed Black Cockatoo. The latter eventually observed at close quarters while having lunch in the cafe above the dam. Dozens of very tame Australian Ringnecks were fed from the hand giving spectacular views. Many flowers were beginning to bloom resulting in dozens of Monarch butterflies taking to the wing in search of nectar.
