Australasian Pipit Photos

Anthus novaeseelandiae

A species I didn't know existed until I saw it, but one that I also immediately recognized! Pipit!  We were visiting Bongil Bongil National Park south of Coffs Harbour, when I saw it foraging in the open grass near the shoreline. Given both it's appearance and behavior, it immediately reminded me of an American Pipit, so it wasn't a surprise later when I looked the name up that it was basically the Australian equivalent!
