Thirsty Sugar Glider

March 24, 2012

Here are some interesting infra-red images of a Sugar Glider (Petaurus breviceps) that recently visited our regularly monitored bird-bath at ‘Flowerdale Heights’. At one stage there is a flash above the bath that could well be a bat flying over.

    Just to point out no such place as Flowerdale Heights.
    I have two possums at night have done for a long time now, 15 king parrots that visit daily for a feed, 4 kookaburras, lots of magpies, rosellas, wrens, other birds too many to name.
    Also don’t forget the native bush rats which are a pest really trying to get in my house.
    The butterflys seen this year are the most unusual lots of different ones.
    You could say my house is a native haven on a small block.

      Good to see you have so much wildlife around – sounds like a lovely spot! The rats may well be introduced Black Rats – we have many of those around at present. By the way, the mention of “Flowerdale Heights” was tongue-in-cheek – the landowners sometimes jokingly use the term for their property at the Junction Hill end of Flowerdale.
