Birds are returning.


The silver eyes are here for the food. They love the ripening figs.

The honey eaters come for a bath in the deep water bowl. This hasn't been a fixture for too long and its interesting to watch from the kitchen window as they come and splash about. Its not a problem to keep this full as with all the rain we have been experiencing this summer our tanks are overflowing.

White-plumed honey Eater

We haven't noticed white-plumed honey eaters here before and they were quite 'flighty' so this is a long zoom to capture the sweet looking visitor, there were also two others but they were not eager enough after I appeared outside. The red wattlebird landed quite close as it didn't notice me at first.

Hope you have a lovely weekend. x

    1. Me too Cathy. The one up the top is gorgeous but the one with the baby asking for food also deserved a share :)
