Almost in the blink of an eye, January, 2017, has been and gone. These are the photos of the birds I managed to take this month walking around my yard.
1 – Superb Fairy-wren (Malurus cyaneus)
This Superb fairy-wren has been resident in my garden for a few years now. In this photo he is showing his full breeding colours.
2 – Sulphur-crested Cockatoo (Cacatua galerita)
Every summer a small flock of Sulphur-crested Cockatoos turn up at my place. They hang around for a few weeks then just turn up occasionally.
3 – New Holland Honeyeater (Phylidonyris novaehollandiae)
Another resident in my garden. This little honeyeater flits from bush to bush feeding voraciously on the Banksia and Bottlebrushes and other Australian native plants in my garden
4 – Yellow-faced Honeyeater (Lichenostomus chrysops)
Another resident Honeyeater, but also hunts for insects around the house.
5 – Grey Fantail (Rhipidura albiscapa)
The Grey Fantail also hunts for little insects around the house.
6 – Galah (Eolophus roseicapillus)
My post would be incomplete without a photo of the galahs that visit my garden. This pair had become aware of me stalking them and desperately tried to hide among the leaves.
