Default Birds at the nest

G'day all
Parked the motorhome amongst the trees for several days rest and found a nest in the tree not too far away

Here's Mum at the nest

exif- Panny FZ-200; 1/125s x F2,8; 24x zoom / 600mm FF Equiv; ISO-160

and Dad's not far away either

exif- Panny FZ-200; 1/320s x F4,0; 24x zoom / 600mm FF Equiv; ISO-100

As always, feedback welcome
Phil

Nice captures Phil, I think that what you have there is an Australasian Figbird the colourful one by the nest is the male and the duller one the female.

G'day Mike

Thankx for your thoughts - I am quite unsure as to exactly what bird it is ... the female is in #1, the male (a much larger bird) is #2 ~~ I think they are honeyeaters but ??
