Glossy Black Cockatoo. (Not my photo)
I saw 9 of these threatened species along the firetrail. Specialised feeders they make a nest in hollow tree trunks. The non native bee also use the same hollow and have been attributed to the decline in numbers of these amazing birds. Over several years I have witnessed the numbers increase in the area I walk.
Eastern Spinebill.(Not my photo)
A honeyeater and a good sign that spring is on its way. Melodious song.
Red Browed Firetail Finch. (Not my photo)
A very busy small bird, with the male brightly coloured, often seen flitting about the sides of the firetrails in groups.
Rainbow Lorekeet. (Not my photo).
A very smart bird that enjoys fruit and seeds and clowns around!
Bright red and green and quite a regular in the feeder and fire trails.
Its clear that spring is certainly on its way
