In response to this week’s photo challenge, “What makes you smile?” I have to say, New Holland Honeyeaters using my sprinkler for a bath.
They disappeared for a few years, following the arrival of the Noisy Miner Birds (vicious birds who harass other birds in groups) but I noticed their return last year. Shy creatures, they dart away from my dog and wait until the sprinkler is near a tree or shrub, so that they can hide away while they bathe.
But they make a lot of noise, chirping and cavorting.
Or signalling that the coast is clear!
Wet and wild!
