Field Notes - It was very funny to see a couple of Willie Wagtails enjoying a little rest on the back of a big Kangaroo. It's male, body around 1-1.2m, grey-brown in colour, a blackish face. I think it's a Western Grey Kangaroo with scientific name: Macropus fuliginosus of the Macropodidae. But I am not sure because both species can be seen in this area: Western and Eastern grey Kangaroo .

Description from Wikipedia

The Diprotodontia (/daɪˌproʊtɵˈdɒnʃ(i)ə/; Greek: διπρωτός diprotos, meaning "two front" and οδοντος odontos meaning "teeth") are a large order of about 120 marsupial mammals including the kangaroos, wallabies, possums, koala, wombats, and many others. Extinct diprotodonts include the rhinoceros-sized Diprotodon, and Thylacoleo, the so-called "marsupial lion".
