Date: Monday, May 21, 2018

Location: In our St Peters garden

Eastern Spinebill (Acanthorhynchus tenuirostris) (1) Our spinebill arrived on 
April 7th, and has been hanging around ever since. Usually it is just heard 
calling, but this morning was spotted feeding in the flowers of a prostrate 
grevillea (Grevillea lanigera, Mt Tamboritha form) in the middle of the 
driveway. I am pretty sure it is a female, but have only ever glimpsed its back 
before it flies into the dense pittosporum next door.
This is only the second time we have seen a spinebill in our garden. Last time 
was in June 2014, and then only for a very brief visit, just a few hours.
