I was interested to learn that Chris Dahlberg has Brown-backed Honeyeaters
nesting earlier than usual at Daintree.  Perhaps its the very mild 'winter'
we've had that has caused the early nesting that is going on in Townsville

I wouldn't say that it has necessarily been a mild winter here in the middle 
of Bass Strait, but the Beautiful Firetails are back on the tele aerial with 
bits of grass firmly held in their bills, making their plaintive, peeping 
mating calls.  Obviously they feel that Spring is in the air.
