I have had my first sighting of the Honeyeater babies in the nest outside my kitchen window. There appear to be two scrawny-necked grey heads, with rippled pink beaks like delicate clam shells.
They seem to alternate in their bobbing up and down, so it’s hard to catch them together.
I have placed a chair by the kitchen sink so I can jump and snap the pair when they are staying up more often in unison.
Mum is being kept very busy and the morsels I have seen her bring are quite large, although I can’t tell what they are.
But it must be good; just look at the eyes closed in ecstasy as it swallows!
And then I managed it: here’s the pair, snapped just after Mum had flown off so both their heads were raised, swallowing hard.
