Straw-Necked Ibis. by DPasschier
Straw-Necked Ibis.

Straw-necked ibises are found throughout Australia, except parts of Western Australia, South Australia, and south-west Tasmania. They are most abundant on the east coast, and also inhabit Norfolk Island and Lord Howe Island

Straw-necked ibises are large birds, around 60–75 cm (24–30 in) long. They have dark wings that show an iridescent, multicoloured sheen in sunlight, and have a dark back and collar. Most of the neck is white, as are the underparts and undertail. They have a long, black, downcurved bill, and their legs are usually red near the top and dark grey toward the feet. Straw-like feathers on the neck of adults give the bird its common name.[2]

Sexes are similar, although males have longer bills and females have a dark band across their upper breast. Juveniles have duller colors and shorter bills with less curvature, and lack the straw-like plumes on the neck.

Brown Thornbill. by DPasschier
Brown Thornbill.

The brown thornbill can be found in the eastern and southeastern parts of Australia, including Tasmania.[3] It is usually found within 300 kilometres (190 mi) of the coast.[7] It shares a substantial part of its range in the Great Dividing Range and the Mt Lofty Ranges with the inland thornbill.[3] It is also common in the Blue Mountains.[7] The subspecies Acanthiza pusilla pusilla and the subspecies Acanthiza pusilla diemenensis have been observed near the Australian Capital Territory and on Tasmania, respectively.[6]

The brown thornbill lives at elevations of up to 1,200 metres (3,900 ft). It is found in dry forests, rainforests, shrublands, and near rivers.[3]

Black-Shouldered Kite. by DPasschier
Black-Shouldered Kite.
The black-shouldered kite (Elanus axillaris) or Australian black-shouldered kite is a small raptor found in open habitat throughout Australia and resembles similar species found in Africa, Eurasia and North America, which have in the past also been named as black-shouldered kites. Measuring 35–38 cm (14–15 in) in length with a wingspan of 80–95 cm (31–37 in), the adult black-shouldered kite is a small and graceful, predominantly pale grey and white, raptor with black shoulders and red eyes. Their primary call is a clear whistle, uttered in flight and while hovering.

Little Grassbird by DPasschier
Little Grassbird
Megalurus gramineus

The Little Grassbird is a nondescript, drab little bird which lives at the margins of wetlands among rank growth of grass, rushes, reeds and sedges, as well as saltmarsh and clumps of lignum. In these densely vegetated habitats, the Little Grassbird is heard more often than it is seen, and its mournful, whistled three-note call is often a characteristic feature of these environments. The Little Grassbird readily engages in conversation with people — its call is easily imitated, and grassbirds usually whistle in response to such imitations.
