It all happened in a flash, and just long enough for this single shutter-click.
A female, or juvenile Satin Bowerbird, and a new kid on the block really, though I'd seen two feeding on the Michelia (red seeds), a few mornings previous. Very shy birds too, so I consider myself really lucky to have had them in so close, and on this occasion, while I had my camera in hand.
while another lands nearby
a Wattlebird checks the bird-bath
and it's the Red Wattlebird
a group meeting
and surprise, surprise, in bounces the curious Satin Bowerbird, just to see what's happening around here. Bonanza! Two totally unexpected shots at it on the same day.
