seeking tasty ferns

A certain indicator of the drought was the small number of kangaroos around Halls Gap township at the northern end of Gariwerd national park. We were up here at the same time last year and there were mobs of kangaroos everywhere. On the property where we stayed there were over 100 roos. Walking Charlie was challenging then as her hunting instincts were aroused everywhere we went. This year I saw 6 roos at the same property. At Halls Gap the kangaroos have come into the town to eat watered grass and for drinking.  This large male was beside a bush track  and ignored me. People have to always be wary of large males especially in the mating season.

    1. They eat the sweet tips of those particular ferns Dorris. But in drought conditions like they were back in March they eat almost anything vegetable.
