    As summer progresses and the bushland goes into survival mode, I get more little birds in my garden. I get to see these little guys through my kitchen window as they visit in late afternoon when I am getting tea together.

    Happy to report that I had two of these buzzing around at the same time - one on lemon balm (yellow flowers) and one on cat thyme (mauve flowers).

    Tachybaptus novaehollandiae

    Common Names: Grebes, Australasian Grebe

    This grebe had two of her chicks on her back when I was photographing. As I walked away from the dam (third photo), I turned around to see all three chicks paddling independently. In the first photo you can see two lumps on her back. In the featured photo you can see one of the chicks on her back.

    Thanks for your site Reiner. There are so many wonderful dragon-damselflies around at the moment but they so easily skip the camera.
