In my garden again

Terri’s Sunday Stills: Kinda Backyard #Birding

Have a song to scroll to

Well I have done a post on the birds plus other things In my garden yesterday morning and long comes a photo challenge from Terri but this time only birds that come into my garden.

This post is some of the birds I couldn’t include in the last post as it would have been too long. Enjoy a few more backyard birding photos.

A Noisy Friarbird on a cold morning

Red-backed Wrens are a small delight to see

As are Superb Fairy Wrens

Red-browed Firetail Finches are often hopping about when the grass seeds are around

So are the Double-barred Finches

Fucous Honeyeaters are in the lower part of my place and occasionally come to the garden

Rufous Whistlers have been around since Spring and their song resounds in the bush

Golden Whistlers are in the gullies either side of the house and venture into the garden every now and then

Grey Fantails are often a bit showy

Little Thornbills are very quick and hard to spot. This is a Yellow-rumped Thornbill

The Striated Pardalote make nests in the sides of gullies. This one has made a hole on part of the garden and will fly out if I walk too close.

Spotted Pardalotes are so colourful and a quick flash in the garden

There are Leaden Flycatchers calling in the garden now

I love the purple eyes of Satin Bowerbirds

The female Satin Bowerbird is not as showy

I almost forgot to include a couple of parrots. The Musk Lorikeet has great markings

Crimson Rosella are quite a sight as they always arrive in numbers

The most surprising visitor to my garden was the Critically Endangered Regent Honeyeater in 2015. This rare bird became a bit of a celebratory for me as many long time birders have never seen one and there it was in my garden.

    1. Yes. Home for the rest of the week so I can get stuff done around here. The Caper White Butterflies migration has started and have just appeared at my place. Lots of storms over the past days so lots of water everywhere πŸ™‚
