Redgums and Bluegums

This is the view from our motel window and although the area around Echuca/Moama, on the Murray is known for its Redgum forests, I think these are Blue Gums. This is a generic term for eucalypts and corymbias which have blue tinged leaves when they are young. We could walk straight out and through the trees to a billabong and although we were woken each morning by a kookaburra laughing I couldn't spot him.
There were plenty of magpies around and the ubiquitous sulphur-crested, white cockatoos but none showed up for this photo. Posted by Picasa
