Bonus Blog: Those Wacky Weebills

Here is a short Blog before we head into Gluepot Reserve later this morning and lose all contact with the outside world. The smallest bird in Australia is the Weebill. They average just about 3- 3 ½ inches long. It gets its name from its small bill (it’s a wee bill) and its song also sounds a bit like it is saying, “weebill.”

They do not wobble and they don’t fall down (American toy reference. There was a toy called a Weeble in the 1970’s and it was shaped like an egg. It could not fall over). These wee birds fly around in noisy, very busy little groups. I stopped to photograph a few yesterday and after looking at the photos (backlit though they are) decided to post this. They are not glamorous Aussie birds, but they are the smallest and they certainly have personality! I am grateful for Weebills.

I love the expression on the face of the left Weebill. His beak looks like a nose. 

Birds. Peace. Love. Earth. Laughter. Music.
