time to feed

blossom offers choice

This solitary Eastern Spinebill, ( a honeyeater) visits our garden annually, arriving in late Autumn and departing back to the mountains in early Spring. He seeks out the indigenous plants flowering in our back yard, Grevillias, and Correas Thirty years ago whole families of these beautiful birds could be seen across our city, but climate change and bird species adaption change now means seeing one is fortunate.

  1. They are so lovely and so beautiful dear Denis, and flowers too… Small birds not easy to catch them, at least for me, they act very fast… These are amazing shots. Thank you, Love, nia

  2. Exquisite photos. The delicate lines of the beak and the slender petals and leaves go together so well…perhaps part of nature’s matching (facilitated by your planting of a dining haven).
