Grey Fantail in Lychee Tree

Another cool night last night had everyone
reaching for an extra blanket. But today's forecast is for a perfect sunny Far North Queensland winter's day with a top of 26 deg C.

All our lychee trees are loaded with blossom so
it looks as if later on there will be a bumper crop for the birds to feast on! As usual we will net a few lower branches in the faint hope that there will be a few lychees left for us!

The trees are alive with little Grey Fantails flicking their tails and darting through the branches after insects. I took this photo yesterday - it's not very clear but you have to be so fast to catch one sitting still.
