We have a rowdy visitor to the golf course at the moment. I haven't noticed the Noisy Friarbirds for a season or two, so it is a pleasure to have them around. A lot of the eucs are heavily in flower and the friars are in good number.
While I was trying to capture a satisfactory image of a Friarbird, a pair of Olive-backed Orioles were persistently calling from a neighbouring tree.
We seem to get at least a pair of Orioles in the same patch of bush every year, and until today I haven't been able to get a satisfactory shot of one. It took me a little while to pin him down - that camouflage does a remarkably good job.
Regards to all,
