This is a Beautiful Firetail video from Tasmania in Australia.
From Birdline Victoria in Australia:
Thursday 8 January 2015
Fork-tailed Swift, White-throated Needletail, Latham’s Snipe, Eastern Bristlebird
Cape Howe Wilderness Area.
Mixed flock of over 100 forks and needles over Howe Flat around midday in hot and humid conditions, ratio of around 70:30 in favour of needletails. (200+ WTNT & 30 FTS seen later over Mallacoota before cool change) Single Latham’s Snipe flushed near start of boardwalk at Howe Flat (track still flooded), and 3 Eastern Brist[l]ebird heard but not seen; contact calls and intermittent song only. No sign of White-cheeked H[oney]E[ater] from November. On Lakeview Track near Barracoota Tk a pair of Beautiful Firetail was nest building, and lots of Little & Musk Lorikeet were present in flowering bloodwoods.
Reblogged this on Marilyn Munrow and commented:
Wow amazing bird.
Yes! They belong to a mainly tropical family; this is one of few species adapted to the colder climate in the south of Australia.
