Spring’s endless demand

Along the Elwood foreshore behind the life saving and fishing clubs is a small grove of mature Banksia trees as well as wattles, sheoaks and acacia bushes and trees. In spring it is a good spot to find Little and Red Wattlebirds attending their young. The Red Wattlebird below was bringing back small insects to its pair of young.  The begging was incessant and is what drew me to the tree from the other side of the picnic ground. It was going to take many visits and small flies to make the chicks happy…

  2. Great shots Malt of the Red Wattles feeding their young. It is not hard to find young birds begging they just keep on chirping till the parent feeds them. It is a very demanding task to be a parent.
