Figbirds and others

We’ve been promised rain every day for a week and seen very little – ‘scattered showers and storms’ is a fairly generous description – but there has been enough around to agitate the birds. During a walk around my garden this morning I saw Drongos, Mynahs, Figbirds, a Sparrow, a Brown Honeyeater, a Friarbird and Blue-faced Honeyeaters, and I also heard a Pied Imperial Pigeon, a Koel and several Peaceful Doves (see this page for photos if there are any you don’t know).

My favourites among the photos I took today were a sequence showing an adult male Figbird (Sphecotheres vieilloti) feeding a well-grown juvenile:
