Back from holidays with 6 new ticks, including a few easy ones...
( and what it may be??)

Actually it was 5, I'd already seen Swift Parrots on a Twitchathon, but this time I got a good long look, well relatively, rather than a 'thon look.

The other five are in no order:

Fuscous Honeyeater:     At Chiltern N.P. (thanks AS), Albury TAFE and every other bloody place I looked, not quite sure how I missed them in the past, maybe I thought that they were grotty White-plumed.

Little Lorikeet:        I am pretty sure that I have seen them before, but a good look at them during smoko at Albury TAFE, NSW

Turquoise Parrot:       The actual tick came on Sean Dooleys great block of Box-Ironbark in Chiltern VIC and then more, really close views at Cyanide Dam (Chiltern N.P.)

Olive-backed Oriole:    Despite looking at and hearing one on a bird weekend at Rotamah Island with Margaret Cameron, I didn't get enough to tick it, well Cyanide dam came through for me again and I saw quite a few


Western Gerygone:       Again, lots calling, but then becoming visible at the Rock Nature Reserve NSW at which I got around 40 species.

Also at Mt Lawson S.P. VIC I got
