I spent about 40 minutes this morning and again a little before sunset watching the birds in the garden. For a while I didn't think any birds were going to show up. After yesterdays weather, with snow down to 200m, they may have all packed their bags and left. Eventually the regulars did make an appearance - New Holland honeyeater, Yellow-throated honeyeater, Grey fantail and Collared sparrowhawk,
A flock of at least 5 Superb Fairywrens were busily foraging on the ground a few metres away and then among the sag and up into a flowering Coast Wattle. The male gave me a chance to improve on the shot I got the other day. It's the only reasonable quality photo for the day.
I was thinking how I hadn't seen the Yellow-tailed Black cockatoos for some time when not too long after, a flock of at least 6 flew by across the top of the hill. A little too far away for a good photo.
A immature White-bellied Sea-eagle flew in from the sea. This was my big chance for a good shot but I was too slow and the focus is not too good.
The best birds for the day were the pair of Wedge-tailed Eagles way way up the hill. Not a common sight here at all. I'll put this photo in just for a laugh as well as to make the other ones look better.
