This morning we were quietly sitting at the table having morning tea when I glanced up at some movement just outside the window.
Two Blue Bonnet Parrots were investigating our bird bath and some hollows in the nearby trees. They stayed for about 5 minutes before flying off. This is a new record for our 5 acre block on the outskirts of Murray Bridge (80 km SE of Adelaide). Blue Bonnets are widespread but nowhere common in the mallee country to the east of here.
Just before they left I had good views of the Striped Honeyeater which we had heard around our house in recent days. This area is about the SW extent of their range.
