  1. Silvery

    .... for I've seen a more severe glare from a Silvereye LOL So pleased to have got him that day, as fast becoming my favourite bird LOL
  3. You look awful wet

    You look awful wet

    A Silvereye, was looking askance at a soaking wet Splendid Fairywren. Not sure, but I think the fairywren may be a young male, as he doesn't seem to be completely blue over the back. Have you ever had one of those days when things seem to start going wrong as soon as you wake up. Such was this...
  4. Oh go away!

    Oh go away!

    A pretty Silvereye was on the garden feeder when we got back. I really adored these beautiful guys. Though in this image it shows how severe they can look!!

    Waiting up

    The only bird waiting to greet us when we got back was a Silvereye. I really had fallen in love with these pretty guys since I'd arrived and saw the first one with Ken in Brisbane.

    Just needs a towel and hairdryer for this gorgeous Silvereye maybe! Rather fell in love with these little guys too.
  8. A good start gets better

    A good start gets better

    Having only seen singleton Silvereyes before, it was a treat to see three together enjoying a feed! I was already feeling quite excited about what was in store for me over the coming couple of weeks. And I'd only been here half an hour LOL
  9. Capricorn Silvereye

    Capricorn Silvereye

    A Capricorn Silvereye (Zosterops lateralis chlorocephalus) feasting on the Sweet Sandpaper Fig (Ficus opposita). When I was on Heron Island in July 2019 I noticed the many silvereye birds, one of my favorite birds, if not even my most favorite bird by now. So, I wanted to film these beautiful...
  10. Togetherness


    I'd seen a pair on my previous visit to the waterhole, so they obviously like each other. Silvereyes remain one of my favourite species.

    Ag oculus

    ..... who gets it then? The title was going to be 'drying off' as he's still a bit damp from a bath, but I changed my mind at the last minute. Still think these are one of the cutest of Australian birds.

    No view of the garden was complete without seeing one of these beautiful Silvereyes. I really couldn't get enough of them!!!

    Back at home after that lovely trip round the Porongurups, there was this lovely Silvereye ensuring we got back safely. Two more Lifers added this day bringing the total to 223.

  25. Bather


    I cropped this as close as I could to see if the wee drops of water on his head would show. Maybe you need better eyes than mine though!! Doesn't he look delightful in there.
