How to wear Yellow and Grey.

Following on from my previous post I wish to share more birds from Churingas B&B. 

Eastern Yellow Robin (Eopsaltria australis
This is the first time I have been able to get a Yellow Robin to stay still long enough for a  decent photo.

Striated Pardalote (Pardalotus striatus)
The Striated Pardalote seemed to be everywhere we walked. All were busy with nesting activity, digging holes in banks.

White-throated Gerygone (Gerygone albogularis
The White-throated Gerygone were building a nest in a tall gum tree. The owners of the property told me the other day that the birds stopped building when there were strong winds, only to come back and continue when the wind dropped. 

More birds of Churingas next time.

Hi there - thats a great set of birds with a colour theme! The pardalote is great - I normally only see them much higher up in the trees.

It would be great if you could link back to WBW so that other visitors to you blog can find it. A text link is OK, and there is a badge on the WBW tab if you want one.
