Default Honeyeaters & birds in the trees

G'day all

All around us at the moment are hundreds of wattlebirds, lorikeets and misc others, all after the nectar from the banksias and some eucalypts.
They are raucous, they start soon after 5am and keep going till sunset - and when I get out with the camera, they all seem to diasppear into the foliage - the rotten blighters. However, today I managed to get a couple of good shots - here they are

1)


2)


3)


Typical exif- Panny FZ2500; max zoom then cropped slightly ... ~approx 600mm [ff equiv]; 1/1000s x F4,5; ISO-250

As always, feedback welcome
Phil

Nice series Phil. I had to look those up, not something I've seen before, I'm guessing they are Noisy Friarbirds which we don't get this side of the country. Birds do like to hide in the foliage when the cameras appear.
