A favourite place on the hill

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.

  2. Hi Geoff,
    Spring hill??? No wonder I couldn’t find them at Rise and Shine of Thursday. . . That just gives me an excuse to return sooner then I thought. 😉
