41 degrees and the birds are swimming
Incredibly hot here today. This is one obvious consequence of climate change – more hot days. We can expect many more days like this. I am hiding inside today and the sandstone walls of Brewongle are keeping me cool. How are some of our local birds handling the heat? Well most of them have swapped flying for swimming. Here are a few snaps of some of our regulars trying to cope with the sweltering conditions. Gary and Sharon the mating wonga pigeons are staying close to the ponds, Traffic Light the scarlet honeyeater is happy to share the bird bath with other honeyeaters and the eastern spinebill’s are all for swimming.
