Eastern Spinebill

Spinebills Feeding 14 x 21cm
At a fabulous native plant nursery on a springy day, while Andy was shopping for plants for the front garden, I lurked about taking photos of all the flowers. We were there for ages in the sunshine chatting with the lovely man when two spinebills came right near us squabbling over nectar. 

They move very fast and their wings make little flapping sounds, I guess they're pretty clever fliers able to get themselves into all sorts of positions to feed. 

If anyone is interested the nursery is called Wirin Wirra and it's hidden in the bush in Tomerong.
