This bird seems to be well worth its name.
Fantastic shot.
Thank you for sharing it with us.

Urban environmental portrait. This little bird, eating immature sow-thistle seeds next to a busy street, was unfazed when I approached and shot from 3 to 4 feet away. It fled when another pedestrian moved by quickly, but it returned within a minute and resumed its meal. It looked like a goldfinch but with much more black than usual.

4th straight frost in a row and the wrens were taking advantage of the early morning sun and soaking up every bit of warmth they could grab

At one time there were 4 in a huddle. Fun to watch them interacting with each other. I'll see if I can resurrect anything from my photos later

Great shot Richard, of this little gal all puffed up to keep warm on a frosty morning.

this is half an hour before the ones of the wrens above and in the lee of my sheds
It was quite comical to watch as the hen would stand on one leg then gingerly put the other down to take a step then quickly lift it, shake it and then put it back down again, move on and lift a leg again
I imagine the ground wasn't to its liking
temperature about -3C
Tasmanian Native Hen

Nice couple of Tasmanian Native Hen shots, Richard. I feel the cold just looking at the frosty grass.

It looks like this proud young owl caught himself a mole. Terrific shot, Steve!

Looks like a pelican convention, fotoi. Nice shot of this group!

Cute shot, Paul! A mother duck with her baby(s) always makes for an endearing shot.

What a beauty, Bill! Acrylic or oil paint? :p

Often mistaken, but never in doubt.

Thank you Mike.
This was a comical scene.
