Photographed on my walk, this morning, with the Nikon D3000.
We begin with a male Crimson Rosella.
The Spotted Pardalote didn’t linger, busy with relining the nest in among the rock foundations of the footbridge.
A glimpse of the Red Wattlebird feeding in a flowering eucaplypt along the service road.
A magpie grooms in the sunshine, high in the old pine tree, while the mate looks on.
A sheep in the paddock across the lane enjoys the morning sunshine, too. It is lovely out, considering we had minus 2 overnight.
And then, on arriving home, I unleashed the dog and went out to check the back yard. At first, I thought I was photographing a Singing Honeyeater, but then I realised it was too small and the face stripes were wrong. Once I loaded the photos into the laptop, I discovered the bird was a Striated Pardalote. You can see this fellow has stripes, instead of spots like the one nesting at the footbridge.
Here is the Singing Honeyeater, a new-to-me bird, seen in the wattle with the Thornbills a few days ago.
Thanks for looking. The weekend is almost here! I hope you have a good one.
