  2. What a delight it must have been to seen 3 lifers in the one outing! I remember seeing those friar birds when I used to live in Sydney, they were sometimes seen and heard in our backyard. You couldn’t mistake them for anything but a friar bird!

  3. Merry Christmas. Yes, I see where your prayers and patience paid off for you in the pursuit of the Regent Honeyeater. Isn’t our Lord gracious to us, His children?

  4. Hi AB, nice to catch a lifer or two!
    The Little Lorikeets that we occasionally have a chance to work with are almost always high up and hard to get a clear shot.
    Beaut to see the fine range of blossom, and we have a couple of areas that have good show too, but I have to say we are quite bereft of good honeyeater numbers. Manage a few Brown-headed and their White-naped friends.
    Must be serious good season elsewhere.
    Best wishes for the festive season, hope it brings joy and enrichment during the time.

    Thanks also for you great blogging work and your support on my own blog. Look forward to what we will see in 2018

    • Thanks so much David for your encouraging comments. Thanks also for your wonderful posts and your unique style of presentation. May you also be enriched and refreshed during this lovely time of year. Looking forward to new adventures in 2018 we can share, and new lifers to add to the excitement and enjoyment of birding. Yes bird numbers appear to be down this summer, and not so many breeding, possibly the heat and dry have caused them to hold off. All the best for the new year!

  5. I love your post and message, Ashley. And the photos are outstanding! How absolutely wonderful to be blessed on this outing with not only finding and capturing the lovely Regent Honeyeater, but two more lifers as well! What a gift times three!! Our God is loving and generous, we just have to follow Him and believe and he will provide.

    Merry Christmas, Ashley!

    • Thanks so much dear Donna for your lovely Christmas greeting, reading your comments always brings encouragement delighting my spirit. I have appreciated you and your postings throughout the year and thank God for you and pray that you will reach full mobility as you continue to mend from your previous injuries. It is special that we love the birds and more so that we love the One who gave them to us to enjoy, who loves us so much.

I’m blessed to have you in my life. You are a wonderful, caring, positive person. May next year bring you blessings, good health, and more wonderful birding trips.
