Hi all,

While sitting at my computer in Burwood, Melbourne suburb, I heard a
little repeated birdcall outside the window. Looking out, and expecting
it to be a blackbird, I was pleased to see, hardly 2 metres away, a fat
baby Little Wattlebird in our flower-laden Grevillea. It was begging
food from two sleek parents who took it in turns to collect nectar then
put it into the greedy open mouth. The heavy baby jumped from branch to
branch following the busy parents, calling all the time.  A lovely
sight, and such easy bird-watching!
