I photographed this Wattlebird in the flax flowers a few days ago. (Nikon D3000) These ones frequent the southern Australian mainland.

An immature Red Wattlebird, its red wattle is barely visible. Young ones have less yellow on their tummy, too.

As you can see, it wasn’t particularly worried about me.

Thanks for looking.

    All the birds seem to go after the flax flowers. It’s a beautiful picture.
    Alec has gone to hospital, not looking good, just hope for his sake that it doesn’t drag on.
    Hope you have a great Xmas and hope you are able to move around again. We will be having a very quiet one with just myself, the boys & Julius.

    Love to you both,

    • So sorry, Sue. My heart goes out to you and yours at this time. We’ve been able to move around for ages, just chose not to. Now, I’m waiting until I get my booster next month. C.
