Stylish wattlebird

I was watching the Little Wattlebirds in my backyard yesterday afternoon, and saw this fine fellow perched up on top of the Ornamental Pear tree. I'd never seen a wattlebird wearing an orange cap before! So I had to take some photos. They were quite obliging :)

At first I thought it might be a colour mutation, but now I think it's a pollen dye job. Either way, I think it looks great.

I agree with the pollen notion, Tommy. And a fine looking Little Wattlebird with a pollen notion it is, too.

Yes, that pollen has caught me before now. Lovely pose.
