Backyard Bird list reaches 48

In the last couple of days, I've had two new honeyeaters to add to the backyard bird list - the Grey-headed Honeyeater and the Singing Honeyeater. It has been bedlum when the sprinkler gets turned on. Despite having two bird baths and a pond, the sprinkler seems to send the birds a bit strange, and sitting in the lemon tree getting a "shower" seems to be the preferred method of cooling down. As the weather warms further, and without any rain, I would thinkthe backyard list will increase even more before the end of the year.

Here are a few recent shots from the backyard:

  1. wow, 48 for a backyard list is very impressive! I particularly love the photos of the Grey-headed Honeyeater, what a beautiful bird. Although we weren't home too much, we managed 30 for our "backyard" patch.
