Hi all.

I wasn't going to post this due to its small size, it's the other photo that is the gem for me. I scared off a one of those yellow honeyeaters and went looking to see if there was a nest. There was and 2 little eggs inside. I took my photo and then moved off to make sure she was going to go back and she did. I was surprised how low to the ground the nest was, only about a foot above the ground. Easy pickings for a cat or fox. It did pick a spot with a small fallen branch covering it for a little protection.

Nice surprise. RuU8zqU
It weighed in at 0.11 gram.

Regards Axtyr.

You always find a nuggy Q15

It's amazing that the bird and its eggs/babies don't get eaten..
Fingers crossed they don't.
Great picture!
