Fairy Martin

Fairy Martin (Image ID 37023)
CommentTwo birds from a small flock of Fairy Martins took a regular break from their mud collection duties on this perch, high over a steep bank of the Murray River. I watched them repeatedly take a breather together on this branch before resuming their industry which I assumed was mud nest building. This led to my assumption that they are a pair. It was September & Spring was in the air....
I chose this photo because in the very early morning sunshine the pair were so clearly highlighted against the dark waters of the mighty Murray far below.
