Red Wattlebird tongue
Louise brought me home a special present this evening... a dead Red Wattlebird she found at work. Whilst admittedly it's sad to find dead birds, and it is certainly not most folks idea of a welcome gift, it gives a fantastic opportunity to learn more about a bird.
What was really remarkable about this poor bird is that its tongue was out. I have always known most honeyeaters have a brush-tipped tongue (to soak up nectar and liquids) but I was utterly amazed at quite how bristly they are! It felt like a soft toothbrush.

I'm sure every man and his dog with a camera has probably got a few shots of Princes Pier but that doesn't make it any less an enjoyable destination to play around at. Original? No... fun? Yes.

Not a small dinosaur, actually a skeleton of a microbat.
We think this is a Gould's Wattled Bat (Chalinolobus gouldii). If you're interested in learning more about microbats you can volunteer at the bi-monthly microbat surveys in the Organ Pipes National Park.
