You dared wake me?

A grumpy dusky honeyeater (Myzomela obscura)
In recent weeks a dusky honeyeater has decided that my TV antenna cable is the perfect night spot. It's there most evenings, and always gone before I stir in the mornings. Tonight I decided to get a photo, and gently woke my avian house-guest before deploying a flash to get the shot. I'm now wondering if it will be the last time I see it.

  1. It will be back. I had one that roosted on a string line on our veranda for 5 years. Not every night but 5-6 nights a week. We could at times touch it especially its tail. These are quite long lived small birds living more than 10 years.
