    Rainbow Bee-eaters are very active in Victoria in summer as they arrive to nest before returning to northern parts. They are fairly easy to photograph as they sit out in the open as they hawk for bees and other insects. Catching them in flight is a bit of a challenge!

    On visit to Melaleuca in south west Tasmania I managed to photograph this rare bird (with the help of a guide!) they scurry about in the bushes and pop up very briefly to see what is going on

    Spotted Pardalotes are relatively common in southern and eastern parts of Australia. Difficult to get a good look at them, but they can oblige! There are 4 species in Australia but only 2 in Victoria

    Thanks all for your comments. Unfortunately all birding trips are off due to the virus lockdown at the moment.

    Birding friends took me to this site where they had seen these birds before, they are not common and quite difficult to find.

    These small birds inhabit dry eucalypt forest and live off insects. Quite difficult to photograph!

    I watched these in a tree opposite our bedroom preening and flying down to a feeder. Taken in Hahndorf South Australia.

    These birds are very territorial and aggressive, driving away other species, constantly squabbling amongst themselves and vocalising constantly. They can be quite photogenic, however.

    The Common Bronzewings are visiting again, they like the birdbath set into the ground rather than the raised one nearby. They are very skittish and difficult to photograph but this female sat in the late afternoon sun long enough to take a couple of shots and pose with head turned.
