Hi folks,

I spent a very pleasant couple of hours today with a friend exploring the bush in the southern Grampians. Our intention was to find the Painted Honeyeaters that Robert Drummond reported last week. Unfortunately we didn't see any, but we did see quite a number of other species. A special moment was watching a male Sacred Kingfisher calling. We watched him for a good five minutes before he flew off.
Other species sighted were:
Shining Bronze Cuckoo ( juv.)
Rufous Whistler
White-winger Triller
Willie Wagtail
White-winged Chough
Brown treecreeper (on nest)
Common Bronzewing
Crimson Rosella
Yellow-tail Black Cockatoo
Sacred Kingfisher
New Holland Honeyeater
Black Faced Cuckoo-shrike
Dusky Woodswallow
Grey Fantail
Grey Shrike-thrush
Magpie Lark
Australian Raven
Brown Thornbill
Red-browed Finch
