I hope its only a few days. wow, soon as someone says not to worry you start thinking "hmmm im a bit worried now" lol I thought of you the other day as I passed 2 seperate flocks of native parrots. Aparently the fires have forced them into estates looking for food so I will make it a point to take my camera and maybe you can tell me what bird it is. I know it is sad they have lost their homes but I am kinda enjoying their company and constant chattering. Take care!

Can't help but worry some. But - I hope you're having some fun out there!

Gidday Lavender
I found your blog when Googling Little Wattle Birds nests cos I've got a pair nesting in my laundry!
There's one egg so far and I'm thinking she's gonna lay at least one more cos she's off out lots (maybe feeding lots for the next egg?).
I'm not a birdie, just love birds and fascinated by them with all of their comings and goings and carryings on.
I've just finished devouring your blogging and pics on the LWBs and their chicks.
What a feast!
Thank you so much for faithfully recording and posting their family life daily. I feel like I've just been to LWB school!
I've started a thread on Birds in Backyards (The Australian Museum) forum and am receiving comments, advice, info and lots of encouragement in my efforts to record my observations.
It's nice to know that someone has already done a great job of recording them - that leaves me free to just observe and record their behaviour seeing that they're nesting v close to us and are pretty much tolerating us at close quarters.
I'm told by birdies that their choice of nesting in my laundry is v uncommon.
All the best whereever you are and whatever you're doing.
