Had a chance to visit Little Desert NP briefly & had a spectacular 45
minutes when 1,505 honeyeaters flew north on a broad front early one
morning. At least 75% were White-fronteds, about 20% Tawny-crowneds & the
rest New Hollands. The blossum was patchy where I was but saw 12 sp of
honeyeaters in a relatively small area. Are these numbers of White-fronted
usual? Would be interested to hear if others have had similar experences.
