A delightful visitor to the garden



While gardening yesterday I was attracted to some familiar calls. Two Mistletoebirds were calling from the mallee scrub near the garden. I was able to steadily walk up to the male until I was merely four metres away. He was sitting in the sunshine with his brilliant red feathers shining like a beacon from the dead branch where he perched. By the time I went inside and collected my camera, he had moved on. Never mind, as I had already taken the above photo late last year.
