2017 -The First Month

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)

Superb Fairy-wren

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)

Sulphur-crested Cockatoo

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)

New Holland Honeyeater

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)

Yellow-faced Honeyeater

Another resident Honeyeater, but also hunts for insects around the house.

5 – Grey Fantail (Rhipidura albiscapa)

Grey Fantail

The Grey Fantail also hunts for little insects around the house.

6 – Galah (Eolophus roseicapillus)

Galah

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.
