    This is how an Eastern Spinebill looks once they're completed their wash and brush up. Rather smart birds aren't they.

    Moving along from the Whipbird, an Eastern Spinebill was up above our heads. A beautiful bird, not my first sighting, but my first picture as I'd seen one at Hans' waterhole. He was so quick and I was too slow LOL - this guy was more co-operative.

    This is my last post for a few days. We pick Delia up from the airport this afternoon and then go off to a Folk Festival and then the Flinders Ranges.

    Uncropped. This bird landed on a wire in front of me and I had no time to step back or remove the extender.

    Another photo from the bird bath on a friend's property down south, hence the slightly ragged appearance.

    Spent the morning doing bird surveys at various locations round the area, and got another few shots of the Spinebill.

    One of the loveliest birds in Australia, this one was taking the blossom on a grevillea tree in a garden.
