Dear all -


My wife and kids were out for a walk today and got photos of a female
mistletoe bird (unless there is something else here in NW Sydney that is
incredibly small and has a red undertail).


They say it appeared to hover briefly at times - my wife says it's the
closest thing she's ever seen here to a hummingbird (saw them in the US in
2000 at my mother's house).

My Morcombe just describes the flight as 'direct'.


Can anybody elucidate on this matter?
