Nitmiluk National Park--Edith Falls
2 individuals bobbing their tails on the rocks by the water at the top of the waterfall. I saw them as I crossed the footbridge about 10 meters upstream. They flew down the cliff, disappearing from sight, as I moved to aim my camera, so unfortunalely was unable to take a picture. I stayed for 20 min scanning the bottom pool banks for to top of the waterfall, but did not see the birds again. I grew up in Switzerland and I am very familiar with the species. eBird checklist
