Emily finishes school for the year at the end of this coming week.

This weekend I let her fill in much of the Atlas form (though I watched
over her).

She was the first to spot what we later identifed as a female Satin

We were thrilled to see a pair of King Parrots there; they and a pair of
Common Bronzewings were attracted to the seeds my dad puts out.

The seed "trays" are on a suspended branch, with 4 layers in all.  Red
Browed Firetails (or should I call them finches?) love the millet, but
sometimes the Bronzewings or the Rosellas push them out of the way.

Is it usual for New Holland Honeyeaters to chase away Eastern Spinebills?

We saw the Rufous Fantail again, but haven't located its nest.

Spotted Pardalotes have a nest on the hill.  Insistent chirping let us know
that there was a young Eastern Yellow Robin about.
