Loud Magpie calls drew my attention to the cam today.

The cam view has been pulled back a bit, but it still looks lovely with the sunflowers and the banner!

I spotted this 'new' bird, for me, eating the apple at Al's

A Lewin's honeyeater - thanks to Al for identifying.


The Lewin's honeyeater prefers the wetter parts of eastern Australia

I'm guessing it's feeling quite at home!

Today was fun watching - the long-billed corellas were around at Kim's. They look pretty fierce when they glare right at the camera!

Image

Meanwhile, at Al's the Bowerbird came to check out the blue clothes pegs!

It really looked as though he was considering taking one in that last screenshot!

The female bowerbird showed up too, and although she didn't seem to be suffering, she had a twig stuck into her breast/throat. Hopefully it was just caught in the feathers, and hadn't actually penetrated far.

When she hopped away it was still stuck, and didn't protrude either side.

I just caught a brief glimpse of Mrs Bowerbird before the lories chased her away. She moved fast, and had had her back towards me, but I think the stick has now been dislodged.

Sadly, I just saw that female Bowerbird with the stick protruding from her throat.

She was moving and eating well.

Now we can see that there are two female Bowerbirds. The one with the stick protruding has not managed to shed it. :( She does, however, seem to be very active and is obviously able to feed. It must restrict her movement though.
