This morning walking to work I saw one white-faced heron, two magpies and three cormorants. The white-faced heron is usually skittish, but it was so focused on catching its breakfast today that it didn't even flinch when I walked past only a metre away.
The magpies were also hunting for worms near the path, but they're never perturbed about people getting close to them.
The cormorants were having a rest on a small jetty, each one sitting atop a mooring pole. One was having a snooze, with its head tucked into its chest.
I also saw Mr and Mrs Plover on the river's edge looking for worms and bugs.
Here are the signs I photographed on my visit to Collingwood and Fitzroy yesterday (click to enlarge all).
