  • I am a Quokka!

    G'day mate! I am a Quokka and I live on Rottnest Island, a popular tourist destination approximately 18km off the coast from Fremantle, Western Australia. You can go here (Rottnest Island Quokkas) to learn more about me.

  • Quokka

    A Quokka. These cute little marsupials are found all over Rottnest Island. They are mainly nocturnal but are still highly visible and sleepily active during daylight. They free-range everywhere so if there's an open door they will go into shops and acc…

  • Emu

    (Dromaius novaehollandiae) Captive bird at Peel Zoo, Pinjarra, Western Australia.

  • Splendid Fairy Wrens

    (Malurus splendens splendens) Female (left) and 2 males in non-breeding plumage. Western Australian endemic.

  • Laughing Kookaburra

    (Dacelo novaeguineae) Wild bird in a tree directly across the road from my house. While native to Australia, this was introduced to Western Australia in the late 1800s. At 40-45cm, it is the largest of the 10 species of Australian kingfishers. Laughing…

  • Kangaroo

    Wild. Creery Wetlands, Western Australia.

  • Inland Thornbill

    (Acanthiza apicalis)

  • Eastern Osprey

    (Pandion cristatus) Death glare. She was in a tree behind where I'd positioned myself to take the previous photos the week before so I assume it's the same bird. I took this standing directly below her with a Canon 7D and Sigma 150-500mm lens while tryi…

  • Eastern Osprey

    (Pandion cristatus) Wild. I think this is a male. Anyway, definitely a different bird to the other photos here.

  • Eastern Ospreys

    (Pandion cristatus) Two of at least 5 different birds I saw this day. There was another pair in a dead tree about 100 metres from this pair.

  • Eastern Osprey

    Taken from less than 3 metres away. I've managed to get close to this bird on two separate occasions before but not this close. She had a big fish underfoot and was crying at two Magpie-Larks which were pestering her.

  • Eastern Osprey

    (Pandion cristatus) Mullet for breakfast. The ravens left after I arrived so I'd like to think I'd helped so she could eat in peace.

  • Eastern Osprey

    (Pandion cristatus) Being harassed by Australian Ravens while eating a mullet.

  • Galah

    (Eolophus roseicapillus) Wild bird on the flagpole at the marina. Flocks of these are a common sight.

  • Singing Honeyeater

    (Lichenostomus virescens)

  • Red Wattle Bird

    Red Wattle Bird (Anthochaera carunculata clelandi) Largest of the Australian Honeyeaters.
