Default Beaks To Be Fed

I have a male Wattle Bird that follows a pair of Magpies that come for a feed at my home.
They wait for me on my rotary clothesline.



The male Wattle Bird has this lovely smudge of yellow coloring on his underbelly.

And just to prove it's not always sunny, here's some shots from today.

Very nice.

My wife feeds the hummingbirds and I worry that she's making them a bunch of slackers......

I wonder?

Very cool avian neighbors. For that matter, haven't seen a "rotary clothesline" since I was a kid....

Yes, they're quite different KevWind.
I like your picture too - in fact I like all your shots, that fox in the snow of yours is a favorite of mine.
