Hi again,

My apologies for posting a half-finished email on 16/3, it escaped from 
my outbox!

Resident birds omitted include Weebill, Silvereye & Ravens (I think both 
Australian and Little)

Goldfinch, an unidentified Warbler, Mistletoebirds, Long-billed(?) 
Corella, a single Eastern Rosella with too much red (perhaps a hybrid 
with Crimson), are with  us occasionally and I have seen a Tawny 
Frogmouth once and heard Boobook twice.

Since 16/3 we have seen our first Black-fronted Dotterel, Southern 
Whiteface and a glimpse of an Eastern Spinebill or Crescent Honeyeater.  
There also appears to have been an influx of White-plumed Honeyeaters 
during the week.

All the male Fairy-wrens have lost their colour, a process that seemed to 
only take a couple of weeks.  The Bee-eaters are still with us daily, we 
hear them often (usually early morning and late afternoon but tend to see 
them only in the late afternoon when they are feeding. I have still not 
noticed any definite direction of movement.As you can see there are no 
'special' birds but they are all marvellous. We are still waiting for our 
first Cuckoo, Pigeon, Woodswallow and Robin.
