During most days I am quite aware of the birds in our garden and around our five-acre property. From my office where I spend most of my day writing I can hear the birds calling. Most days I usually spend some time outside working in the garden or the shed and on those occasions I get to see the birds as well.
One species that is a delightful occasional visitor to our garden is the beautiful Mistletoebird. Over recent weeks I have been hearing this species calling on many occasions, sometimes several times a day. They are elusive little birds however, and I haven’t managed a recent photo of either the male or the female.
