Yesterday afternoon the morning clouds and rain moved out to sea and it turned into another perfect day. What could be nicer than to go out looking for birds with good friends who just happen to be expert birders! (Thanks Neil and Kel!)
The highlight of the day was this little female Red-backed Wren that was busy hunting around in the grass. You can see how tiny she is by the stems and blades of grass that she was hunting among. The caterpillar or grub that she caught almost looks too big for such a tiny bird.
The male Red-backed Wren was also around - but not nearly so easy to photograph successfully.
There were also a number of honeyeaters high up in the trees among the Paperbark flowers. The Scarlet Honeyeaters have eluded me until now - but they were still too far away to give really good clear views.
