He's got the late afternoon watch.

This male Costas is keeping vigil on his feeder late into the hot afternoon.

Beautiful. They flew past here 2 days ago but kept going

Aww, you didn't have any pine cones? :-(

LOL. Those magnificent birds were here before pine cones :p
They just need educating.

We have Silver Wattles (trees) that have some sort of growth the parasites cause (or something like that)
They gorge on them, but they're all gone.

I like the relaxed interaction between the two birds - well captured.

I'm glad you liked it Graham. Thank you very much for your kind words.
