I'm really excited too Lavender!!! Do you know which birds they are yet Lavender?

BetteJo said...

Woo hoo! That means we'll be able to see it too! Right?

Anon I do! Little Wattlebirds! They must be going for a second round while the going is good.
This nest is low, only about 4 foot off the ground - Im so hoping to get regular shots of the nest build, eggs? CHICKS???
Practically holding my breath over here!!


BetteJo Im going to try darn hard!! LOL Very hard actually, as the lay of the land here is everytime we want to go out the back door (aviaries, gardens, laundry) we alarm them...so Im sneaking around my own house so as not to spook the birds! ROFL!

Keep your fingers crossed everyone!!!

I photographed an empty Little Wattlebird nest yesterday, but it will be more than a month before blogging it :) I hope your Little Wattles hurry up! My Red ones are already flying!!

Lavender said...

Oh, I will look forward to that! Isnt it amazing how fast they get out on thier wings - absolutely amazing
I hope these two are sucessful and give me lots to shoot and share!

You could place some potted foliage as cover. That way you'd have something to hide behind and get some good close shots.

Thanks Barkfoot - a hide of some sort is definately in order...will see what I can rig up today as I dont think it will be long before she begins laying!
