Every Garden Needs a Birdbath
With the beautiful Autumn weather we have been enjoying (and some great rain), we have spent many pleasant hours sitting on the veranda enjoying the birdlife in the garden. I have been doing a lot of hard gardening too, cleaning up the remains of summer in preparation for the Winter onslaught.
Installing birdbaths around the garden was the best idea and they are used regularly by most of the bird visitors, especially since we have had such a dry Summer and Autumn. Please enjoy these visits just as we have enjoyed them.
A communal bathing of Red-browed Finches.
Very shy and hard to catch a decent shot. A Yellow-faced Honeyeater.
A young Adelaide Rosella, just beginning to come into full colour.
A European Goldfinch drops in. These used to be very common here, but these days they are occasional visitors. Not an indigenous species, but pretty and very welcome to visit.
And one of my favourites. This pair of Silvereyes have been hanging around a lot lately. I hope they stay a while.
