What are the chances????

Early this morning I spent some time taking some pictures of what I thought was a Yellow throated Honey Eater for our 'Y' Snappy Friends challenge.


After I made this collage, I thought that I had better make sure I had my bird names correct, and discovered that it is in fact a New Holland Honey Eater, so I was unable to use this collage for the challenge.
Later in the morning I went to the sewing room to do some more painting and to discover a Yellow Throated Honey Eater inside my sewing room!!!! What are the chances of that!!!

He wasn't even stressed by his ordeal, and let me take a couple of pics before he flew out the door!

We have quite a few families of New Holland Honey Eaters in our garden, but to see a Yellow Throated Honey Eater is quite rare!!!

Maybe he came to Christian my new sewing room! LOL!

Bye For Now

We have lots of New England Honey eaters here they make an amazing noise when they are threatened.
