Despite the cold nights, the weather lately has been sunny and warm.  At times even hot.

This seems to have brought out a large number of birds that we see daily, passing the deck or on our way around the property.

While most of the regulars are here, we also seem to have some new visitors.

 

Here’s a few recent bird sightings.

;

Eastern Spinebill

Acanthorhynchus tenuirostris

A new arrival for us in 2017…  or at least we did not see them before that.

;

Laughing Kookaburra

Dacelo novaeguineae

A family of Kookaburras live in the forest just of the deck.  We see them and hear them every day.

;

Striated Pardalote

Pardalotus striatus

With our steep banks and eroded gullies we see lots of Pardalotes across our property

;

Golden Whistler

Pachycephala pectoralis

The Golden Whistlers live behind the house in South Park, and are regular visitors to the Cassia brewsterii  at the end of the deck.

;

Scarlet Honeyeater

Myzomela sanguinolenta

A regular visitor to all of our Callistemons and Melaleucas.

;

Grey Shrike Thrush

Colluricincla harmonica

One of our favourites, and a beautiful song bird.

;

Spotted Pardarlote

Pardalotus punctatus

One of the truly spectacular birds that calls our place home.
