This little Diamond Firetail (Stagonopleura Guttata) was having a lovely time in the apple trees. I wasn’t sure I’d get him as they are so quick.

The Diamond Firetail is sometimes called the Diamond Sparrow. Although they prefer to be near watercourses in forests, malle or sparse woodland, this little guy and his friends also like my apple trees.

They feed by jumping up to reach grass seeds and often nest in the same tree each year. They are usually in flocks and breed August to January.
