Photo a Day 195 - Weekend Critters

Adelaide is sweltering in a heatwave at the moment. We are having our 4th day of over 40degree celsius heat - a record period for December.  The garden is suffering badly, but the birds are enjoying  the sprinkler in the evenings.

 This fellow is an Eastern Rosella - Adelaide version.

And the new Holland Honeyeaters were enjoing the wash as well.

 They are promising a cool change tonight and rain for Christmas. Let's hope so.

  2. Wow, gorgeous birds and images. I love both of the birds, but the Holland Honeyeater is beautiful. I would love to see them all in person someday. Great shots. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Have a happy weekend!
