Eastern Spinebill - baby

Not selected for Google Earth or Google Maps [?]

Observed this baby bird in the pom pom tree for weeks without leaving. It gets its own food from the flowers and the parents also feed it. Note the pollen all over its face.

Truly beautiful observations and gallery of these wonderful birds. Fine work. Like very much Trin.

Thanks Trin, there's not much wildlife action here at the moment, all the lizards have disappeared, no raptors, everything is dead, no decent rain for ages. but these little birds in the pom pom tree have kept me amused. I've been watering that tree like crazy to keep them there.
