a familiar sight around Australia
Blue-faced Honeyeater, though the 'blue' isn't evident, perhaps a juvenile, or it's in the shadows? These birds were quite vocal and seeming to always be on the move, hard to get a good overall shot at them as they too, fed on the macrozamia fruits
I was sitting on the verandah with a coffee (and camera) and spotted in the distance, my only chance to get the photo, and the first time I've sighted ... a Squatters Pigeon
a dry creek bed, surely something would be down there...
a little family of juvenile or female Fairy Wrens were enjoying the last of the sun that afternoon
there was evidence of Pardalote holes in the clay bank ...and a vague sighting of Striated Pardalotes
my luck was running out it seemed
when I spotted this Red-backed Fairy Wren without having my camera settings right. Or was I too excited to keep control over the camera?! It's rather like the fish that got away....
