I like this bird. I don't think I have seen something like it here in US. I wish the bird was in a bit more open surrounding, the OOF nests (I think) on the right distract the eye from the bird inthe #1 shot.

If you have posted shots of these before, then I certainly missed them. I like them.. those yellow hilights are interesting.

Hi Julie - I like the first shot as the bird is able to be entirely seen. It sure is a pretty bird. Do you know its name? Also, are those seed pods hanging from the ends of the branches around the bird?

yes they are seed pods, and he is a is a Yellow-throated Miner. I think he is a cute bird as well. they seem very intuitive and you can get closer to them than some other birds.
