In the Great Sandy Desert of Western Australia, on a warm summer day which was 55C ( 131F) in the shade.

Any shade was good.

  4. Don’t think I have ever heard of them. How odd they are looking the opposite way – one down and one up and yet are they stand quite close to each other.

    Thanks for dropping by my blog.

  6. Beautiful. I’m in Oklahoma and we have these horrible scrawny birds everywhere. They run about with their beaks hanging open and looking all dirty. I’d love to see these…even in the heat

  10. Omnes, thank you all for your kind comments. This little honey-eater lives right across Australia. As for the heat that day, in that particular settlement maxima of just above 60C have been recorded so while hot, this was average warmth for November.
