Here, There & Everywhere . . .

Within a matter of seconds this New Holland Honeyeater had done a quick round of the garden beds, plucking insects from the air and garden plants. They have nested very near to us this year, along our fence line and are busy collecting food for their young.

They are one of the main honeyeaters that frequent our garden and are quite aggressive about their territory when it comes to other honeyeaters and birds. The Little Fellas call it “Boo Boo”. I don’t know why. But I do know that there are several “Boo Boo’s” that visit our garden. Not just one!

About Petit Paradis

I am on a journey with my family to transition as closely as practicable to a state of self-reliance in suburbia. I practice permaculture principles in our house, garden and community. We are on the southern coast of Western Australia. To our north is the rest of the world. To the south, Antarctica.

    Birds there look so . . . foreign. That guy has the eyes and facial expressions of a road runner.

    Boo Boo must get really tired flying from there to here!
