This bird, the golden whistler, is bright yellow and black but I like him best just as he is here, unadorned. This morning me and harry got attacked and bitten by a small dog. It was quite dramatic and shook us up quite badly. Harry retired to her bed most of the day and all I could do was draw pictures of birds. It was soothing and restful. The concentration and repetitive scratching on the board really helped me get my equilibrium back. So that’s why today has produced a small flock of small birds. #smallbirdsofblackheath

One more small bird of Blackheath – the last one for the day. It’s a Varied sittella. It sings a pretty song and acrobatically works it’s way down tree branches looking for bugs to eat. #smallbirdsofblackheath

Another sweet little bird of Blackheath – the Rose robin ( not to be confused with the pink robin of Tasmania ) lives mostly down in the shady damp canyon below our house. Pink and grey with a dash of white above the beak. Thank you again to @calyptorhynchus for clarifying my confusion on this little chappy.
