Honeyeaters in the Garden

Nothing new in the way of visitors to the garden this week, so I thought I would feature the honeyeaters that are very active at the moment.  We have planted a lot of native shrubs especially for the honeyeaters, but they much prefer to dine on the Fuchsias, Salvias and Agapanthas - go figure!!

The Eastern Spinebill is probably my favourite bird, but very hard to catch as it is constantly on the move. Colouring is very pretty. Love to hang upside down  collecting nectar.

The most prolific of the visitors to the garden is the new Holland Honeyeater. They are more than happy to pose for a while.

This last one is quite a youngster and very cute.

    I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don't know how to cook or clean, don't want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women?

    American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least.

    This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.

  2. Their eyes are kind of wild looking with the white around them....

  3. I like seeing it hanging upside down. I don't usually see that!

    Sorry about slow reply - I have been in New Zealand and blogging has taken a bit of a back seat.
