Birds in our Backyard-Eastern Spinebill

Much excitement today as I spotted an Eastern Spinebill in our backyard for the first time.
It was making repeated splashes into our bird bath and quite unperterbed by my presence.
Hopefully I will capture it on camera soon.
I think there are 2 of them but also saw a silvereye at the same time.
I have seen them at Mt Lofty in the Adelaide Hills but never here at Plympton Park.
About 8 years ago I saw one at Seaton which is about a half hour drive from here and also on the Adelaide Plains.

Now I have added my own pics of the bird taken last week in the Canberra Botanical Gardens.(20/4/15)
