    Parked my car in the forest and when walked out I was amazed by the sound these little bell birds made. It feels like I was in the middle of the bells playing orchestra. More over there were so many of the birds they flew from everywhere and went in every direction. To get a picture all I had to...

    They don't sit still for long! Very active, clambering through branches and grasses.

    Saw a small colony of bell miners yesterday at Bandanoon National Park picnic area. This one could be a juvenile perched on a prominent branch and was not too shy for photo. I had to shoot against a bright sky, only managed to get a thin-leaved gum tree as background.

    Took photo of this bell miner at Glenbrook, the Blue Mountains of New South Wale. Fascinating little bird that sounded like the echoing sonar beeps of the submarine! There were a few of them scattered on nearby trees, each make one ping, one after another and creating the feel of echoing sonar...

    There's a big colony of these at the botanical gardens. Honestly, listening to their 'tink' 'tink' sound over and over again drives me insane whenever I go!

    'New for me!'

    Just had to share this! I had been reading up on sightings and decided to go and have a look at Wilson's Reserve myself as I haven't been to Ivanhoe for about 30yrs (Used to work in that area when I first started teaching students to drive ....another lifetime ago) Pete and I wandered around our...

    Why so sad??

    Walking in the BotGdns this afternoon I heard the metallic 'ting' ... 'ting' sonar-like call of the Bellbird / Bell Miner. Difficult to see in the foliage until they move (i.e. fly away) because of their distracting call which seems to come from almost every direction. Finally located this...
