Garden birdlife

on

We are lucky to have a variety of birdlife that frequents or garden.  This year we have been fortunate to see the rearing of three red throated wattle birds.

We first noticed the nestlings in one of the trees in the front garden. 

It was difficult to get up close enough to get a photo but as they have grown the chicks have moved location and I was able to get a reasonable photo of two of the chicks, the other chick was on a different branch.

The parent birds have moved the chicks closer to the source of food.  The bottlebrush has just recently exploded into bloom so basically the chicks are now in the larder.
