    Blue Faced Honey Eaters

    A little while ago, I posted a shot of one of these birds in my front garden. Since then, it has become apparent there is a nest in a palm tree at the edge of the garden as there are birds coming and going all day. Here are a few shots of their antics.

    Comments welcome

    Nice series Dave,

    You're lucky to have such colourful birds 'on your doorstep', so to speak.

    Only minor suggestion would be to clone out the bright stubby bit top right corner of the last (juvenile) shot.

    Cheers,

    Nice series Dave, very interesting bird. Very well done . I always enjoy seeing birds outside of my own little habitat.

    Thanks for your comments Dave, Kevin and Paul. I'll fix that little bright spot on the fourth shot - I meant to do it but forgot.
