The Trees.......................

The trees around the cottage were full of all sorts of beautiful birds, most of them however did not like to pose for photographs........... Not certain what sort of bird this one is, at first I thought perhaps it was a honey eater of some sort, but then it came to gobble up some of the crumbs, which had me doubting myself, I don't know if the nectar eating birds would eat tiny offerings of bread.................. This is a Blue Wren, although I was told by a local that they are only blue in the hotter weather. Tiny and quick as lightning the trees were literally teeming with these little birds....... And finally I was lucky enough to have caught this red breasted finch as it took a few seconds rest............... As I gazed out into the bush that surrounded the cottage I could hear the thousands of birds chirping away, seeing them though was an entirely different story. Even the larger birds where camouflaged to the point of invisibility, safe I trust from the larger birds of prey who patrolled this area.............
