The rain

has brought new birds to the trees in the garden, &, for once, easy to see because of the grey-sky background. A northern fantail keeping watch over, & sometimes engaging in a dance with, a pair of weebills,

the smallest bird in Australia, one of which, or perhaps both in turn, hovers with its wings beating fast time, in much the same way as I would image a hummingbird does.
