A Gorgeous Visitor is Zipping Around Your Backyard
Australia is home to two kinds of spinebill - the Eastern Spinebill and the Western Spinebill. Both coasts are host to their own spinebill, and this month, we'll guarantee you'll want to make your backyard a great hangout for this cool bird.
The best time of day to spot spinebills is around breakfast. They love to eat early in the morning, particularly in the first 90 minutes after they wake up. But you can keep your toast and Vegemite, because these buddies are after nectar and nectar only.

You may have shivered through the cold snap in May, but there is a very good reason to celebrate it. The chill means it’s now a great time to look out for Red Wattlebirds!
These birds don’t like snowfall. It drives them out of their usual high altitude, mountainous habitat and down to lower lying areas.

A brilliant little buddy to watch out for around this time of year is the shy little Scarlet Honeyeater.
The first thing you’ll see is a vivid flash of scarlet, showing why it gets the nickname ‘bloodbird.'
