Silvereyes feeding on the ground

G'day all

Over the last few days I have been watching a flock (20-30) of Silvereyes
from my office window.  They have been feeding like Yellow-rumped
Thornbills or Red-browed Finches - i.e. on the ground.  I don't know what
they are eating but the lawn has recently been mown and there may be lots
of disturbed insects.

I can't recall ever seeing silvereyes feeding on the ground like this.

On another matter I am of to China and Singapore for a month on Friday so
I'll unsubscribe for a while.

Happy Atlasing!
