This photo was taken at Tyto Wetlands at Ingham. It is a beautiful conservation area, well worth a visit and has a great variety of bird life on offer.
The chances are pretty good that whilst there you will bump into a very knowledgeable local by the name of Tony. Take the time to listen to Tony as he is a treasure trove of detailed information about the wetlands and its residents.
Tony has a blogspot under the moniker of Tyto Tony where you will find many fascinating and witty writings about the wetlands accompanied by superb (envy inducing) photos.
