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.

 

Female

Superb Fairy Wren…


…and her mate.

 

 

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.

    • Have often wondered the same thing Terri. Especially on the farm with sheep and cattle wandering around the paddocks….it’s a wonder any eggs survived to hatch chicks let alone the chicks survive predators thereafter…
