At the bird-feeder today....

Things have been very gloomy in Melbourne in recent weeks with heavy cloud and daily showers. Today however there was some colour to be enjoyed at the in-laws' bird-feeder.

Rainbow lorikeet (Trichoglossus heamatodus), Mitcham

What was that? Did you see something Reg?
I was watching some grazing Wood ducks one day & noticed one was looking at the sky in this manner - it had spotted a distant raptor!

Naah, it was nothin'

Rainbows on Rainbows - I'd not noticed the upper leg colouring before.

Often known as a Mudlark in Victoria, the Magpie-lark makes it's nest on a horizontal limb with plant matter held together by mud

Magpie-lark (Grallina cyanoleuca) Male

Also well known by the name Peewee (or Murray Magpie apparently if you're a Crow eater)

This Noisy miner (Manorina melanocephala) wondered if it was missing out
