Being relatively new to birding and from NSW, I am not too familiar to the birds of Victoria.
I have however been interested to read about the records of Chesnut-breated Mannikins around Melbourne. I am I wrong in perceiving that all the records for Chestnut-breasted Mannikins were from around the 70's and 80's, or are these birds still being recorded in Victoria?
I saw a number of Chestnut-breasted Mannikins feeding on seeds of weedy annuals on the Western headland of Port Campbell on roughly the 4th February 2004.
