Wrentits are quite tiny birds and have a relatively long tail. They duck and splash and push one another out of the water. They soon look quite bedraggled!
Some times there are as many as five or six trying to find a spot in the water
The photos are not easy to take as the birds are so small and the dappled light and shade mixed with the birds' somewhat nondescript colors makes for good camouflage.
There are actually at least five of them in this shot. Count tails and beaks. When they finish playing in the waterfall they move over to the Cape Honeysuckle and then on to the bouganvillia.
After a few sips of nectar and maybe an insect or two, off they go to the next yard.
Birds are creatures of habit like most other animals and this little show is enacted for us every afternoon -- just as we re-enact out tea-sipping ceremony!
This is my latest art work. It is of the Queen's Hotel in Prestwick, Scotland which was located on the sea front or Esplanade. My parents lived here in the 60's by which time I was married and had moved to Canada. My father was the hotel manager . It has since been turned into a Nursing Home. I have never been there, but to me it seemed a very bare and empty picture, so I added a couple of bushes and a sun umbrella to liven it up a little.
I'll be back!
