Swiftly getting nowhere

This last weekend [May 14/15] was designated by Birdlife Australia for Swift Parrot and Regent Honeyeater surveys. We checked out suitable environments at Heyfield, Holey Plains and Jack Smith Lake [well, perhaps not JSL but the birding was excellent]. Five of us failed to see either species but these Musk Lorikeets were occupying ideal Swiftie habitat.

These Red-necked Avocets and one Banded Stilt were occupying their own suitable environment as was this single Hooded Plover, all by itself on the shore of the 90-Mile Beach.
