Singing Honeyeater..



Although we have had much rain in Perth over the last few days there were moments like this when the skies were super blue. Yesterday at Hillarys Boat Harbour to take photos of something entirely different I was sidetracked by the singing honeyeater sitting so prettily in the scrub bushes along the coast. Not having the patience it takes to be a true birder, when one of the smaller birds (18cm) sits still long enough for me to take a shot.. I'd be mad not to. I saw many swallows also but they were not as obliging :) P was after bigger fish.. might be a guest post tomorrow. Happy Tuesday, take care and stay safe... P.s. one thing that I've noticed lately.. I'm easily sidetracked :)

  2. It's such a pretty bird and I'm guessing from it's name that it has a sweet voice.

  12. I think I could become a birder...in an area where they would guarantee that I would see a lot of birds :)

  17. I agree blue skies are so desirable/incredible after days of rain! Your bird captures are always way better than mine. I get sidetracked too, mostly on my days off!
