I was just about to put another load of laundry in the washing machine when I felt compelled to go back to my desk, sit down and pick up the camera.
In doing so, I caught a female juvenile Superb Fairy-wren at the bird bath having a drink.
The is a first folks! 😀
I’ve never seen a Fairy-wren use the bird bath before (and as you now know, I do nothing all day but look out the window from my Room With a View LOL 😀 ).
When I downloaded it, I found a shot from yesterday of the baby boy and with a tape measure in hand, measured the pot so you could get a sense of how tiny these juveniles are. The plastic terracotta pot measured 6 1/4″ from base to rim, so now………you can appreciate their size and the full pot is not completely shown in the frame (below) either.
Is there a Bird Angel watching over me?
(I also noticed that the holes in the new bird dish, where the chains hook, are much lower in this one and with the gusty wind swinging it to and fro, the water is emptying much quicker than the old bird bath. Perhaps it’s meant to be a seed bowl, not a water bowl).
