Mistletoe birds

Mistletoe birds are one of Australia's most beautiful and colourful species. This is a small bird that is only 11cm in length. Due to its size and that the bird will often only be seen in the tree tops it is rarely seen by most people. The male Mistletoe bird, as you can see in these images is a very striking individual. The female Mistletoe bird is quite a grey bird with only the slightest hints of the flame red that are shown here in the male.
