Karri forest of Manjimup

IMG_8180

More fantastic Karri and Swamp Karri (Bucchil) forests heading down south through Manjimup to Walpole. This massive 60 metre high Karri served as a fire tower and is now available – amazingly in this era of insurance led super safety – for climbing . Drats, I had sandles on so couldn’t do it. LOL.

First sighting of a pair of Rufous Treecreepers. The male is in the first two, identified by a mixture of black and buff chest feathers. The female only has buff chest feathers.

 

At the cabin above North Walpole, surrounded by Karri, these kookaburras are certainly well used to people.
