High & low

In between rain showers our Red-browed Finches Aegintha temporalis were out and about searching for grass seeds high and low.

A family group spent some time just working over the ground around the grasses and ground cover plants feasting on the seeds that the rain had knocked down. We have these birds around the property year round and at times it is easy to overlook them when looking for some of our more rare visitors but they are such gregarious guys they are very entertaining to watch . Their range is right down the east coast of Australia excluding Tasmania.
