The second half now, of The Boys Walk, Cooranbong

beautiful trees; interesting textures, and lovely lichens beside the creek



Superb Fairy Wren

 noxious weed (native to S.E. Africa) with  a pretty yellow flower, is known as Fireweed


and another of the Eastern Yellow Robins, which proved to be our bird of the day 

 they sure make my day!

checking some thing out ...first time I've ever seen one on the ground like this

oh!

Good on you little Eastern Yellow Robin!!

Your robin is very pretty.

Hi Carole, For such a tiny bird the yellow robin seems to have a healthy appetite by the size of that worm.

Love the intense colours of the Fairy Wrens.
