I had a nice day at the Barren Grounds Bird Observatory today.  I took out
an American birdwatcher who had to see a Ground Parrot or else and
surprise, surprise, we saw one.  Other good birds were an Eastern
Bristlebird walking around the carpark, a Southern Emuwren male which
popped up at the appropriate moment, and at head height a pair of Gang

There seemed to be a lot of Crescent Honeyeaters feeding low down in the
trees near the car park as well as a White-cheeked Honeyeater which was
interesting too.  Only one Beautiful Firetail was seen.  And only I saw it,
darn it!

Good birding everyone
