Dear all,
Just a quick note.
Birds this am at home (1.5 acres on the Burnett River
in Bundaberg City)..........
Spectacled Monarch....3rd home record...exactly the same
                                  corresponding day of the first sighting in 1995
Black-faced Monarch....also 3rd record for home
Rufous Fantail...first for the season here
White-browed Scrub-wren....7 or 8 ...2 family groups...largest number
                                         at one time at home
Gerygones;Mangrove and White-throated
Honeyeaters;Lewins,Mangrove,White-throated,Brown,Little Friar,Noisy Friar
Kingfishers;Sacred and Mangrove
Plus 25 others.
It seems the weather is changing at last to give us a little rain
from the very dry conditions...maybe got the birds going!
A Double-barred Finch which started nest building 2 mths ago
is back at the nest in our Lemon tree.........presuming it's the
same finch!
All the best,
