Much to my surprise, the Red-browed Finches were back at the bird feeder today, and they allowed me to walk toward them with the camera without getting too frightened.   Knowing it was best not to push my luck too far, I managed to capture a few photographs which show off their beautiful plumage.  The Crimson Rosella eating seeds shows their relative size as well.

The bright red feathers certainly are eye-catching, even with an adult Crimson Rosella close by.

I did take one more step… but I was caught out. If I’d moved any closer, I’m sure they would have flown away,
