Queuing up

It was a busy Boxing Day evening at the bird bath – Sulphur-crested Cockatoos and Common Bronzewings paid visits, along with Crimson Rosellas, Galahs and Red Wattlebirds.

Here’s looking at you!


Common Bronzewings were queued up and waiting their turn.

  1. We had two juvenile Brown Treecreepers at our bird baths this evening – the first time I’ve seen obviously young ones of this species (though the adults are of course ever in abundance here). Normally Brown Treecreepers don’t seem to go in for immersion but these young ones didn’t seem to know this and both enjoyed being thoroughly wet.
    As well we’ve had bathing Crested Bellbirds again this summer – both sexes – and it was only last summer (after over ten years of being here) that this was first observed, although we hear them calling virtually every day, often at very close range.

    • Hi Alison – thanks for the note and especially good to hear about the bellbirds. The Muckleford bush is one of their remaining strongholds in central Victoria.
      All the best, geoff
