Hi there birders,

Here in Murray Bridge South Australia we have experienced several days of intense heat. Friday 45C Saturday 45C Sunday 40C and today the forecast is for 22C - not sure how we will cope with the cold snap!

During the heat I was able to watch a procession of birds coming to our bird baths. These are situated about five metres from our sun room where I could sit in air conditioned comfort and watch the passing parade. I was interested to see that both Striated and Spotted Pardalotes were the most frequent visitors during the last few days.

Happy birding - and keep cool.
