I didn't pick up this thread until Mick Todd's post, so don't know if it's
already been diverted into a "favourite songster" thread. But since
Michael's gone for the Heathwren, I will add that I do have a genuine
favourite. It is the sound of the Scarlet Honeyeater - that beautiful,
silvery, descending tinkle that delights me every Brisbane winter when they
move into the suburbs. Except I haven't seen any so far this winter. I hope
others are seeing/hearing them again.

The Lyrebird's song is the most dazzling, but it doesn't provoke quite the
same response in me that the Scarlet HE does.

Cheers, AS

>>  However, I can't let a discussion of great aussie songsters go by
putting a good word in for the Chestnut-rumped Heathwren. Its still my
favourite. I love its varied repertoire as well as its tuneful nature.
