Little bird

While in Tasmania we also visited friends near Burnie on the north coast. They have a stunning property with their very own rain forest. Imagine having a rain forest in your back yard.

There were pretty little birds everywhere and one in particular was determined to drink the nectar from the yellow flowers beside the front door of the house.

Little bird

It is a beautiful part of the world.

Kathy and Michael both write blogs about their travels and experiences. Drop in and say hello to Cannon Hill Chronicles and Tiger Dreaming.


  1. That rain forest is truly magic and the little bird is beautiful, great photos, Deb!

    • The rain forest is a tiny santuary from the world. How lucky they are to have it.

  2. What a cute birdie! Do you have any idea what kind of bird it is?

    • Kathy might step in and answer this question. I forget.

  3. what a beautiful little bird, dear Debra, I loved her photographs. Thank you, love, nia

    • The whole garden was full of birds. I am pleased this one came close enough to pose for me.

  4. We live in the heart of a rainforest in Portland, Oregon. Your photos are lovely.

  5. Wonderful shots. What camera are you using these days?

    • I have a Panasonic LUMIX now. I gave up on the Canon G12 after 3 of them died within 18 months.

  6. Such a beautiful place and the yellow of the flowers is so brilliant.

    • I would be very happy to have a rain forest in my back yard.

  7. Lovely post, Deb, thank you. Your photos are stunning. The bird is an Eastern Spinebill and it looks like they may be a pair. The one with the darker colourings is male and the lighter one is female. I wish they would pose for me!

    • They were very well behaved for me. If you stand there long enough you will capture them.
