This is a new visitor to our garden, the Brown Backed HoneyEater. A pair started scoping the joint a few weeks ago and now are busily building a nest right next to our pool.

They have caused quite a stir in the garden as they are clearly very territorial and have proceeded to bully and scare the Yellow Bellied Sun Birds away from their nest. Sadly, this has meant that although mummy sun bird did produce 2 babies, she has now abandoned the nest and the babies have perished. Mother nature can be a cruel lady at times.
