A ‘tuftie’ at the waterhole

Visits to the waterhole over the last few days have yielded a rich vein of bird observations and images. This sequence, showing a Yellow-tufted Honeyeater arriving for a ‘quick sip’, is typical. Most smaller birds alight in one of a number of strategically located saplings, check that the coast is clear and then make a quick dash to drink and/or bathe. Yellow-tufted Honeyeaters are beautiful birds – their appearance is enhanced in the golden hour before sunset.
