Mistletoebird magic

With the single nestling about to fledge this will be my last encounter with these wonderful Mistletoebirds for the season. It’s been a privilege and joy to watch them over the past couple of months. While the male could be seen in the vicinity of the nest yesterday afternoon, only the female visited with mistletoe berries and to assist with nest hygiene duties.

    Yes, this made my day, too! Such an exquisite little nest and the determination of parent and nestling for food is an insight into birdlife.
    These photos capture something special! Thanks Geoff.
