Spinebill action

There was plenty of action from the Eastern Spinebills in the garden today. At least three individuals are cruising around the local neighbourhood, feeding on Grevillea, Correa and a variety of winter-flowering eucalypts. This species is a real treat as the winter days close in.

    Beautifully acrobatic, they’re having a wonderful time on the correas and erymophilas in my garden, happily just outside the kitchen window!
