Following on from my Black Grasswren post, pictures and notes follow on other birds seen during the trip that Alexander Watson and I did through the Western Kimberleys this month.
We camped at and birded four sites - Mitchell River National Park (where the grasswrens were; see grasswren post following), Drysdale River Station (on the Kalumburu Road, 60 kilometres north of its junction with the Gibb River Road), Miner's Pool (a lovely site on the Drysdale River a few kilometres north of Drysdale River Station) and Silent Grove (20 kilometres north of the Gibb River Road, the turnoff being a few kilometres west of Imintji).
The distinctive Kimberley race of the Partridge Pigeon with its yellow face (image above) was seen regularly feeding about the Mitchell River camping ground.
The Kimberley Honeyeater is a recent taxonomic split, from the White-lined Honeyeater of Arnhem Land. This was one of several that we encountered while looking for Black Grasswren at Mitchell River.
