One of our favourite things about living here is the abundance of beautiful small birds. We are prepared to spend the time and effort netting the planned berry bushes and fruit trees, so that we can still love the little birds and still harvest some produce!
One of the most beautiful of the small birds is the Golden Whistler, we don't see them often as they seem to spend a lot of time high up in the trees, but their call is unmistakeable so we know they are around. You can imagine our delight whilst having a cuppa on the verandah, when this one sat himself on the compost bin, fossicked around my pot plants, ate a bee, poked around amongst the lettuce then flew off. Wonderful.
