Ruling the roost

After having Rainbow Lorikeets dominate the bird baths for a month or so in late summer, the local residents have resumed ‘normal service’. The smaller honeyeaters, mainly Brown-headed and White-naped Honeyeaters, visit in ones and twos throughout the day, with Spotted Pardalotes and Weebills the other common visitors.

Red Wattlebirds though, rule the roost, arriving at pace to move on the smaller birds whenever they’re spotted slaking their thirst.
