With all the rain and storms this month the birds around home have been laying low, but with a few breaks in the weather they come out for a preen and a feed and even a bath!
A couple of months ago we had up to five of these large birds roaming around the yard!
(the only Christmas turkey at our place this year)

The males of this species are starting to lose the bright red colouring of their facial patch.

The Brown Honeyeaters like to get wet anytime.
Even the lorikeets have been a lot less noticeable than usual.

This moth took cover on our back verandah the other day.
I was able to identify it through this great website:http://lepidoptera.butterflyhouse.com.au/cato/selen.html
