New birds at Parkes especially in my back yard is, a none occurrence, at least for the last couple of years. On Boxing Day a Black Honeyeater spent the day feeding on blossoming eremophila’s, the first bird I’ve actually seen feed on them in the yard. The bird was readily approachable within a couple of feet. Just gives you an idea how dry it is getting.  That afternoon a threat of a storm produced about fifty Fork-tailed Swifts flying south, taking any chance of rain with them.


The next day in Cobar a blossoming eucalyptus tree had a smorgasbord of honeyeaters, White-fronted, Brown, Yellow-plumed, Spiny-cheeked, Little Friarbird, Black Honeyeater’s.
