After the butcher bird family spent all of last week in the front yard, especially around the bird bath outside our study window when it was hot, they’ve moved out to our back yard (see the young’un above checking out one of the water bowls in an old tree stump in our back garden) and other gardens around ours. The parents certainly teach their young well!
This week we have wattle birds, magpies, a crow and a young kookaburra (see above) hanging around the bird bath.
Our garden is a place of gifts, including the new plants that we planted last spring. With watering each evening, they have survived summer so far:-)
And the daily visits from the red-tailed and white-tailed black cockatoos to feed in our many trees are a great source of joy:-)
