Yesterday in the garden

I was doing a bit of building work on the shed yesterday. In the afternoon I decided to have a break and was sitting on the step when there was a flash through the garden and onto the hibiscus. I was used to seeing Yellow-faced Honeyeaters getting a snack from the last red flowers. This time it was a smaller different coloured bird. Then all of a sudden other birds came swooping through the garden.

Here is just almost a half hour in  the garden.

The Peaceful Doves are always around. They are small and can get through the wire around the chooks yard and house. They always have a supply of food.

Of course this isn’t in the garden. The dam is quite low so I was surprised to see three Pacific Black Ducks swimming aroundpacific_black_ducks_dam_home_jackadgery_june 2019

Out front, this Grevillea is flowering. The Eastern Spinebill loves coming in to get the nectar. Sometimes they like to hover like Hummingbirds while their bill is in the flowerseastern_spinebill_grevillea_garden_home_jackadgery_june 2019
Every Winter there is a small flock of Yellow-faced Honeyeaters who stay at my place.yellow_faced_honeyeater_garden_home_jackadgery_june 2019

Eastern Yellow Robins are always around. When the heat of Summer is on, they spend more time in the gullies that surround the house. Yesterday there was two Robins who chased each other around the garden

This is the visitor I have been waiting for, that first flash though the garden. Every year the little lovely Rose Robins arrive to add that splash of colour to the Winter garden.

I hope you enjoyed a quick half-hour in my garden with me.
