I’m not sure who got the biggest surprise, me or this White-plumed Honeyeater.

I was on my way back to the house after taking pics of the butterflies. It was on the way to the bird bath. After pausing for this photo, it snatched a mouthful of water and took off.

I saw an Eastern Spinebill Honeyeater yesterday in the gum tree out back. But it was gone by time I got the camera. Good to know they are still about.

    Must be the perfect weather for all the flowers and animals. Fingers crossed we don’t end up with bushfires again if it keeps dry. I think they said the weather is affected by El Nina, if I remember correctly that brings milder weather. Fingers crossed

    • El Nina is combined with some other thing called a positive Southern Annular Mode. The weather bureau is predicting higher median rainfall and maximum temperatures in the higher median range during December through February. And increased fire risk in the parts that haven’t been burnt recently. There’s going to be lots more flooding where the catchments are full. Yeah, great!

    Bet those idiots in charge of the water management don’t think to let some water out before the rains start pelting down.
