More spring babies

Black Swan Cygnets, Etiwanda Wetlands 

Australian Shelduck with chick, Etiwanda Wetlands

I rarely go to Etiwanda Wetlands but I thought I better check it out since I'm taking a group of primary school students there next week to bird watch for Bird Week. It was terrible weather but the swans didn't seem to mind! I also saw a baby Shelduck - I couldn't get very close so not a great photo but I don't see them much so I've still included it here.

Wild Bird Wednesday


  1. Very cute little ones and great to get a photo of the Shelduck with the chick.
    P.S. We LOVE visitors!

  2. The cygnets are so cute and the Shelduck is a beautiful duck. Wonderful photos of your wildbirds!

  3. a lovely photograph and I hope the weather will be fine for the outing with the kids

  4. I think it must be spring! Nice pictures.

  5. Lovely Shelduck. I don't think I have ever seen that species in wildfowl collections over here even though there are often some exotic wildfowl. Don't expect to see one in the wild!

  6. Thanks for sharing! For some reason I have taken a greater interest this year in which bird does what, when!
