Little Wattlebird, one of the Honeyeaters, conceals itself in the foliage of a Banksia tree.

Unfortunately the cloud cover came across not long after the solar eclipse started and this crescent moon apparition was the last captured image of the night.

I watched the solar eclipse from the headland the other night, quite spectacular as the moon rose over the ocean while transforming itself into a glowing ember. It was incredibly windy and I had to learn my little point and shoot on a memorial to ‘lost sailors’ as the six foot kangaroos wandered in the dark around me.

There are always a few Eastern Rosellas around, invariably they are in pairs that keep each other in close proximity. They are colourful and beautiful broad-tailed parrots and rosellas come in distinct varieties of plumage. They are a clear rival of Jacob’s coat of many colours.

I’ve been off the bird watching radar lately with the demands of finishing an Arts Degree circumventing most attempts, but I spotted this darling Crested Pigeon walking on the driveway and have to admit they are a real favourite with their contemporary ‘punkish’ eye makeup and ‘gelled’ hair. The Bronzewings are a group of ground feeding pigeons that are common through out most of Australia and they are certainly prolific in my locale.
