  1. What a beautiful place…and post, Ashley. As always, I enjoyed the birds, but also the flowers you had captured! You have winter now, and we have a hot summer, over 30C every single day and the night temperatures are only just a tad lower. Not many birds around at day time.

  2. Your Brown Gerrygone reminds me so much of our little wren. I do love seeing birds on the other side of the world from me! I look forward to ordering your book as well, it sounds wonderful! I always enjoy reading your insights into life and scripture as well as the beautiful birds you post about. Blessings and stay warm down under!

    • Thanks Sue for you most kind well wishes, it is the beginning of a new season for me, and quite uncertain yet, but I trust God has it all in hand and it will pan out in good time. We so need a holiday and a fresh bird encounter. Winter has set in here today with cold winds, and the rain from last week has started bringing back some birds, but the drought is not broken yet and the el nino persists for another season. Have a great weekend!

    • Hi Kathie, probably not as cold as over there as we do not get snow in Sydney, but it is snowing in the Snowy Mountains at present. Today we are expecting very cold winds and a maximum of 13 degrees C. Most of the time on the coast the temp never gets below 6C but inland can be 10 degrees colder in the mornings.

  4. Wonderful post Ashley! Looks like you found a fabulous new trail to explore. I know I would truly love it! The birds in this post are so unique. So different from our species. I love reading your blog. Congrats on moving to part time work. I know you will treasure the extra time off to explore and spend with family.
