Like people, birds have favourite places too.
On Friday evening I visited the western side of Spring Hill that has been a wonderful place for birds over the years. It’s here that I captured my best ever photograph of a male Crested Bellbird, where White-backed Swallows have congregated atop a prominent dead tree and where I glimpsed a Black Honeyeater the year the drought broke.
I was not disappointed on my recent visit – Rainbow Bee-eaters were gathering on that same dead tree as a flock of Varied Sittellas foraged along the bare trunk. I must return again soon.
