We have been having hot days but beautiful evenings lately and if we spray ourselves to keep the mozzies away, we are able to sit on the veranda and watch the bids having a last drink and feed before settling for the night.
A small group of Yellow-tailed Black Cockatoos flies over about the same time each afternoon, but yesterday they decided to visit a while right at the top of our Copper Beech tree. For once I had my camera on hand and was able to get these rather fuzzy photos. While the beautiful cockatoos are moderately common, I always get a thrill when they stop by.
That particular evening we also had a visit from a white-browed scrubwren. Again fairly common, but rather secretive so we don't often see them in the pen. Luckily they love our bird baths.
An Adelaide Rosella stopped by for a while and surveyed us from the top of the Dogwood
And now the Agapanthas are flowering, the new Holland Honey-eaters are very busy taking nectar.
Thank you for visiting my garden and the birds that frequent it. As I sit here at my computer, I can hear that it is raining outside. Hopefully it will be slow and steady all night.
