The solar eclipse in Perth was 92%.  Although there was a significant
darkening it did not really get that dark.  The birds in the small park
outside my office ( Wattlebirds, Singing, Brown and New Holland Honeyeaters,
Magpies, Ravens, Doves and Ringnecks ) did not appear to be affected in any
way. They were fairly quiet but they normally are at that time and it was a
fairly hot day as well.  Perhaps someone in Geraldton / Greenough area where
the eclipse was 99% would have a more interesting observation.

If anyone is interested, pictures of the eclipse are available at the
