Worth waiting for?

I suspect some readers have been waiting patiently for an update on our local Mistletoebirds.

I am delighted to report that there are now two hungry mouths to feed – the nestlings are perhaps a week old now and very demanding.

Both parents were making regular visits late on Sunday afternoon, with mistletoe fruits the main fare. The female also brought in a bill full of insects on at least one occasion.
