Tue 30 Oct Western Spinebill Karnup Nature Reserve, Western Australia
Pleasant stroll with my little three year old boy (birder in training) heard the spinebill several times and eventually a pair crossed our path fleetingly.... enough time to get a good look but not enough time for a photo! Maybe next time?

Shining Bronze-Cuckoo Secret Harbour, Western Australia
Probably this bird has been heard calling for the last month or so. This is the closest it has come to us to allow this average photo.
