Bird of the Week Challenge: 10th October - spring flowers

Happy Monday everyone!

 

We are one week out from the Aussie Backyard Bird Count - hope you have had a look at the aussiebirdcount.org.au website and downloaded the app :) But before Bird Week, lets focus on another glorious aspect of spring, the flowers that are around. Your photos can include birds if you like, but don't have to.

If anyone is in Sydney on Wednesday, we will be in Martin Place with a pop up garden - please pay us a visit!

Bottlebrush is always a favourite with the Lorikeets.

Fresh wattle picked for this Helmeted Honey eater just as my daughter and I were arriving at Bird on the Perch avaries near Tathra. (NSW South Coast)

Little Wattlebird feeding on a Grevillea at home. Most Grevilleas (and especially this one Moonlight) respond very well to an annual prune and as such can form a very attractive shrub that will flower for an extended period attracting all sorts of birds and live for many years.

Lovely pictures. I am surprised by the birds on the wattle as I seldom see them doing much about it. Grevillea is much more attractive. Is it soemthing to do with lack of nectar?
