Through the kitchen window…
…Hawk vs Mudlark.
Red Rump Parrot
A few years back a pair of Spurwing Plovers began…
…to nest somewhere around our mailbox.
One year I very nearly…
…walked on their chicks.
One had gone to ground to hide around…
…three inches in front of my foot.
Can you see the spur on the left wing
as you look at this photo.
They have been absent for a few years.
However, on Sunday they were heard,
and sighted, again after a long absence.
Superb Fairy Wren…
One of our resident
New Holland Honeyeaters
Not sure if male or female, but it was certainly
letting me know not to go near a wayward
offspring, which I had not spotted until after
the photo was taken such was
the ferocity of the adult voice.
