Other than the awesome crocodiles, we also saw lots of cool birds on our Yellow Water Cruise. Kakadu National Park is home to 1/3 of Australia's bird species, which means there are over 280 species. I've put pictures of some of them here and tried to label them according to what my Kakadu Birds iPhone app tells me. I might be wrong on some of them, so if there are any bird experts who'd like to correct me, feel free!
Green Pygmy-Geese (a type of duck)
White-Bellied Sea Eagle
There are over three million of these in Kakadu. The one on the right was going crazy in the water.
Brolga (probably my favorite)-this big guy's partner was hiding behind a bush. We saw her too.
Comb-Crested Jacana (also called a Lily Walker, Lotus Bird, or Jesus Bird)
Baby version of the bird above (so tiny).
Glossy Ibis and Purple Swamphens
Little Pied Cormorant
Forest Kingfisher (so small-you have no idea)
Great Billed Heron
Azure Kingfisher (another super small one)
Another sea eagle with an annoying bird that kept pestering it.
Black-Necked Stork (Jabiru)
Another Great Egret (or maybe an Intermediate Egret)
Another Sea Eagle eating a fish.
The birds of Kakadu National Park are beautiful (as are the sunsets!).
