Hi All
    I am new to birding and I want to keep track of the birds I see on my daily walk through the local bush.
Is there a standard way to record citings? What is the best method? I regularly see up to 30 species in an hours walk I do most days from my house.
    I started to get more interested in birds recently when a little bird appeared in the grevillea outside the loungeroom window and I had never seen it before. It turned out to be an Eastern Spinebill, I have since seen a lot more of then not far from home as well as a whole stack of species that I didn't realize where even found in my area (northern end of Lake Macquarie NSW) it's amazing what you find when you look.
    Also are White Cheeked Honeyeaters common in this area? I was watching a few Fairy Wrens in a grevillea on 12/12 and a bird landed in the same grevillea and it was quite striking with it's yellow colouring against black after a few mins a second bird joined the first and they continued to feed for a few minutes before flying away.    
                                                    Thanks for any help
