A family of Eastern Phoebes, Sayornis phoebe, joined us and entertained us at dinner tonight.
It was a great reward for the garden having produced the largest number of moths in all the years I have been a gardener. A family of four fly catchers entranced us with their aerobatic antics. Swooping through the air with great agility like WW2 spitfires. Coming to rest on the tomato cages.
The show went on long enough for David to go inside and get the camera and provide me with a nice shot of a perching bird. As we came inside the house David told me this was one reason why we can never leave here. I guess there is no retirement for a gardener!
