Macropod Diversity in the Canberra Nature Park - Mt Taylor

Last Thursday I found myself with a couple of hours to kill on the south side of town, and with most of the Canberra Nature Park closed for the kangaroo cull, I went to Mt Taylor for the first time in years.

Mt Taylor is the large hill south west of Woden, next to the Tuggeranong Parkway.

While there were plenty of Eastern Grey Kangaroos, it was pleasing to see the less common macropods there as well, particularly two pairs of Common Wallaroos, the least common of the 4 local species.
