What a beautiful bird. Doesn't look very shy. Great shot, Carole.

Lovely shots of the Minor and the Bottlebrush Carole both basking in glorious sunshine.
The birds over here are enjoying their first taste of slightly warmer weather so hopefully the morning chorus will begin to increase soon.

Ptak wiedział jaki kolor kwiatów wybrać, bo ślicznie wśród czerwonych wygląda. Pozdrawiam. *** Bird knew what color of flowers to choose, because the red looks gorgeous. Yours.

Great shots Carole! I am rather partial to Noisy Minors. I know people don't like them but I love their cheeky characters and the fact they hang around so you can capture some nice shots :)

I think in some areas these pesky little noisy miners have become almost a pest ... I love the way they seem to be always squabbling amongst each other .

Fabulous captures. New follower today as I found you via TexWisGirl. Love to see an Australian blog. We're in winter in North Dakota. Summertime is so refreshing to see.

Our new favorite birds! :-) And I was just about to say, "Isn't that bottlebrush?" when I read that it was. I can't remember my own phone # but I remember that! Ha!

The photos are delightful!

I am still amazed there is enough nectar in flowers that birds larger than hummers can use it as a food source...
