Wattle birds





The wattle birds are back in our yard.The other night we saw them as they swooped and dived trying to catch small flying bugs in the air. It was very hard to photograph but wonderful to watch!Query: does anyone know why these honeyeaters would only appear in our yard in early autumn and spring.

I can't answer the question about the birds, sorry. I did read your previous post and was just charmed by it. We all get to the same place in different ways, don't we?
