Yesterday we reached 47.4C. One of our bores has died and the remaining bore cannot keep up with community demand. So water has been off for much of each of the past three days. About three hours of water, morning and evening.
Our little sprinkler which has become the water source for so many birds has been dry during the hottest part of the day.
So I improvised and hung a cup of water in the tree above the sprinkler.
I was rewarded when one of the smallest (10-12cm) of the honeyeaters, the Brown, came for a drink.
Why don’t you join in and show us the bird life in your part of the world? Just leave a message here and we will come and have a look.
