CommentThis bird was one of several congregating by the air con overflow pipe on the rear patio of my Sydney motel. It was an afternoon as hot as Hades and Sydney was still quite dry. This bird was perched on the railing awaiting its turn for a drink. I chose this image as to me the bird looks quite pensive in the soft afternoon light and it also shows the subtle yellow cheek patch.
