Subject: RE: BS: Birdwatching 2009
I like playing here.
I'm in south-west Victoria, Australia. It's Summer and a few birds are into a second breeding.
Three baby New Holland Honey-eaters are trying to get nectar out of the long-handled brush that hangs in the tree beside the water dishes. It's the brush I use to clean them.
As well as New Holland Honey Eaters we have:

Australian Magpies
Australian Ravens
Boobook Owl
Wedge-tail Eagles -- part of their hunting range.
Willie Wagtails -- with 3 babies at the moment
Yellow-rumped Thornbills
Brown Thornbills
Welcome Swallows
Nankeen Kestrels
Brown Falcons
Black and White Chats - visitors
Silvereyes -- visitors
White-faced Herons
Sacred Ibis
Black Swans -- with 7 young ones
Mountain Ducks
Crimson Rosellas -- visitors
Grass Parrots -- visitors
Yellow-tailed Black Cockatoos -- visitors
Corellas -- visitors
