40 degrees here at Young NSW today and the birds were feeling it. Hen Siskins were sitting above the nest and not on it,young Tri coloured Nuns in a nest not too far from the ceiling were a concern.Others in nests a bit lower should fair better,but probably were still uncomfortable.Hosing the aviary down helped and the tiny Nuns were being fed late this arvo,so they have survived.More hot weather to come,hope everybodies birds survive.

So far so good here in Adelaide. Today was the hottest day expected (41) and the birds handled it well. Just one more day of severe heat tomorrow (38) and then it will slide back down to the high 20s.

The birds are enjoying their occasional blast with the garden hose.

43 here in north central vic yesterday. Expecting 41 today. Only one day forecast in the next week to be below 35c. Will be interesting to see how the birds manage the extended heat. So far so good.

It was in the low 40's before Christmas, but has been unusually cool here on the west coast since.

Looks like we're going to have another string of scorching hot weather in SA and VIC. Hope everyone's birds pull through okay.
