The Kangaroo Paw is starting to flower. It won't be long before the Eastern Spinebills, Little Wattlebirds, and New Holland Honeyeaters start fighting over the nectar

New Holland Honeyeater getting in early

Cute little bird. Caught in in the open. Good work.

Thank you Allan

Nice image to start off with!

Thank you Karen. Hopefully next weekend will give me plenty of variety of birds in the Kangaroo Paw, if not it will over the coming weeks before it gets too hot.

Superb, Richard. I love that white iris: it reminds me of those on female Bushtits out around here. Is that perhaps a female also?

Thank you Eric. I'm not sure of the sex of this bird. Both males and females look similar, the female being slightly smaller than the male.
