Hi Gordon,

Last year while walking alongside the Nepean River at Penrith a lady asked
me if I had seen the 'Humming-birds' further along the track.

Upon closer inspection this proved to be a male Mistletoebird sitting on a
shrub and three juveniles hovering in front of him, virtually motionless and
floating in mid-air on quickly beating wings.
