Yellow Rumped Thornbill Acanthiza Chrysorrhoa by 

I have been watching and photographing this pair of thornbills for the last week. they bring nesting material in to the nest every five minutes for hours on end only stopping for feed then back to work I noticed for the soft internal lining they wanted was wool but unfortunately that was over two hundred meters away that’s a four hundred meter round trip a long way for a small bird so I felt sorry for them went over and gathered a great handful of wool of the fence and placed it on a stick about one meter from the nest well there are now two happy thornbills and that nest is almost finished .

Thanks for dropping by my name is Donovan wilson I am a professional landscape and wildlife photographer based in Marysville Victoria I have always had a love of the Australian bush and I hope through these pagers you can see and feel my passion .
