So, I’ve been neglecting my Bruny Island Birds blog probably because it’s winter and getting out and rambling in search of avian friends is a little challenging…
But today, from the comfort of my kitchen, I caught sight of an eastern spinebill supping nectar from a grevillea. I have seen him there often in the past month, but he’s very timid and is usually driven off by a new holland honeater that patrols the grevillea 24/7.
Today he caught the new hollandie off-guard and made a feast before he was attacked and put to the wing, being chased by the snapping NHH for about 200m.
Anyway, I liked the images I got and here is one.
