Hi Joanneh
Spinebills and Scarlet HEs are far smaller.
And even faster.

The NH's are a great favourite with me - I never tire of photographing them, and they are great parents as well as being feisty little birds!


Love the New Holland, their colours seem so comical for some reason, wish they were in my area :( Well done for getting the photos.

Yes I can confirm Eastren Spinebills more difficult to get photos of have several from the weekend that ended up in the recycle bin!
Amateur...aren't you somewhere near Sydney? I got some photos of NH HE's near the golf course at Dee Why, so maybe they are around and hiding?!

Use what talents you possess; the woods would be very silent if no birds sang there except those that sang best


Yeah, I live around the Blacktown area, however I think we might be just a little to far inland for it, I really must go to Dee Why someday, seen so many great photos posted up from the area.
