white throated honeyeaters, Melithreptus albogularis at garden birdbath

White throated honeyeaters Melithreptus albogularis IMG 8901 -These gregarious birds are attracted to water and each day they spend a considerable amount of time bathing. The birds in this image had been taking a dip in a pool in the photographer's sub-tropical garden, and on a summer's day when the temperature was well in excess of 40 degrees Celsius, they were in no hurry to leave this relatively cool and shaded spot in the sub-tropical oasis that they call home throughout the year.
