Thanks to all who responded to my query of Dec 27 about the
absence of Musk Lorikeets in my area of Melbourne, given
they usually arrive about the beginning of December.

Of course I saw some the next day! But my picture still
corresponded with that f other people in Melbourne: they
were late.

Few clues to where they might have been (with the Regent
Honeyeaters?) apart from Bill Jolly seeing the species near
Toowoomba in SE Queensland!

Incidentally I should have mentioned that Musk Lorikeets
left this area unusually late in 2002 with birds still being
quite widespread in September.
