It would appear as though Spring is not too far away here downunder. The Daffodils are making an appearance, plus several of the trees are starting to get blossom's.

The birds are also starting to become active as they look to making their nests.

Here are a few snaps taken yesterday from the small reserve at the end of our street.

#1 Eastern Yellow Robin

Most impressive set.

Thank you Louis

So pretty. I like the robin best, not the kid we see in NH

Thank you Allan. The Eastern Yellow Robin would be one of our more common Robins, they are also a favorite of mine

Great series.

Thank you Luis

Another shot from the weekend of the Male Spotted Pardalote

https://www.birdlife.org.au/bird-profile/spotted-pardalote

One of Australia’s smallest birds, the Spotted Pardalote builds its nest in a long horizontal tunnel dug into the soil of creek banks, the embankments of railway cuttings, quarries or similar suitable sites, and sometimes they even excavate tunnels in rabbit burrows, or potted plants in gardens. The nest itself is spherical, made from strips of bark, and built in a chamber at the end of the tunnel. Pardalotes are usually seen foraging in the crowns of eucalypt trees, where they pluck invertebrates, especially psillids, from the leaves.
