Thank you Neil. Yes I love the common name. I've been trying for years to get a photo of them. Have seen them flying around my garden for years, but never saw one stopping at a flower. It was a thrill to notice some roosting in my garden :-)
This is only the second time I've seen them in my yard. They are not very common sadly so it was so awesome for them to stop and hang around for about 15 minutes. It was a male and female with a Juvenile which was squawking all the time for food :-)
I remember seeing them here fairly regularly as a teenager to young adult Neil before I moved into the city, but this was the first once since moving back here in early 2015 after my Mum passed away, and the first one in many years to be honest. I'm in a bird group on facebook and a lady has been getting photos of them quite a bit of late at Penrith in the far western suburbs of Sydney
