Here's some links to a bit more info on these fantastic little characters:
http://birdsinbackyards.net/species/...ulus-frontatus
http://keys.lucidcentral.org/key-ser..._frontatus.htm
Even over on the Eastern half of the country, you really only see these elusive little fullas in good quality woodland - meaning that they've lost a helluva lot of habitat. (The northern subspecies is endangered).

Blazing blue skies here! Unlike the knee deep snows alot of you folks are mentioning....
It hasn't snowed here in...............well, exactly - never!
Just remember that snow can be really cool though
Rarity for me - I like to just "do" snow.......very useful for meeting other Ozzies in the middle of the Alps or Himalayas, when holed up in some lonely hut :-
Door opens......"Righto! where are the Ozzies here? - saw your yellow kangaroo / map of Oz out on the trail!"
(Cautionary note: if yer from the "Apple Isles" probably best not to reveal a map of Tassie - that'll get ya a whole 'nuther response!)

As a denizen of a country stuffed with birds I could make such good use of Zen-Ray binoculars which would enable me to pick out not just those brazen avian tarts bedizened with garish colour ready to cozen me into stunned admiration, but also those many dozen little browny ones hidden in the multiplicity of browny foliage. The clarity of such an image would then be eternally frozen in my mind and I think the joy of such an experience would make me a better citizen. . . .

Now that's a worthwhile post!

Failed in the lunchtime quest for waxwings yesterday,
perhaps I needed help from Zen Ray.
I might just have another go,
avoiding patches of frozen snow.

looks like it is finally going to stop freezing over here. A few more days and the birds are going to have a much easier time.
