young Wattle bird

Yesterday afternoon the wattle birds appeared again. They come back to around our house in about Sept /Oct . The Oldies tell me this is the right time to plant as they herald in the safe time to plant. They have been absent for a while , nesting. Yesterday I noticed one on the power wire, calling his shreyek-shreyek, to all the world I was so pleased to hear him back.
Then this morning outside the computer room is an apricot tree, with one apricot left on it . I could hear a young bird, begging for food, when I looked it was a wattle bird youngster, and a parent who was teaching it to eat the apricot. By flicking his long tongue into the sweet flesh.
I love the wattle birds.
