Feed The Birds. #SundayStills. #8. 23/2021.

Feed The Birds. #SundayStills. #8. 23/2021.

Each week I am writing and posting here for inclusion in the #SundayStills from this blogger and kind person, Terri from here.

And also this is part of my blog’s category for sharing photographs.

I have now combined the two and made a shared purpose photo for this photographic challenge.

Late in 2020 I noticed a flash of movement outside our house.

We have a glass splashback over the stove (never install one, people, we are renting so no choice!) and I saw something flitting in and out of the agapanthus we have growing there for most of summer.

I did not do anything after that other than find my iphone and get some images.

I later found out this was a kind of honey-eater bird and have never seen one since but on this day, the agapanthus WAS feeding this bird!

Have you seen any like this before?

We live in a coastal region of New South Wales Australia in a temperate climate.

 

 

 

 

 

 

I sure would love to say I have seen the bird return, but no, we just have regular nuisance birds who mess up our back patio!

This girl, around 2 years of age, is my Rosy Red.

Actually her second name is Rose but some members of the family have called her Rosie or Rosy from time to time. First born granddaughter. Such a great experience in my  life, to hold the daughter of my daughter in my arms….2 days before Christmas way back in the latter half of the 1990s!
