THIS BIRD DIANE?



This fellow was quite nervy as well and bribed him with a little honey...Blue-faced Honeyeater...more common in the north.

I know that bird well.

Too many birds at the moment! - all looking in the windows at me for a handout - the Butcher birds at the back window and the Kookas in the front. Too clever for their feathers!

Am having the same thing happening here and insects are plentiful....lorikeets screeching, butcherbirds singing, magpies warbling, galahas yelling, and doves cooing .....

Yes, Lizzy, that's him. You are clever to snap him before he flies away. The ants are driving me crazy at the moment. I cant stand still anywhere without getting attacked and they are in the house too.
The birds are noisy here as well. The crows are the worst. But there is a drongo (I think) that is giving us his song too as well as the lorikeets and minors and butcher birds with a kooka now and then.
I heard an English woman on TV describe our birds as screeching while English birds sing......

Diane,

I love the noise and was unfortunate I described as screeching...such a joyful, flamboyant noise.., Australian songsters may have been the origin of the European singing birds, I read somewhere? After all this is an ancient land. That may raise the ire of some..he he..

Just checked out your lunch on the river....yum

Cheers
