Hi all,

whilst on Mt. Bass fire trail saturday morning at Royal NP, I 
saw two beautiful firetails within a patch of heathland. The 
same morning, on Wises Track, I had a very good look at an 
inquisitive male southern emu wren in heathland. There were 
plenty of tawny crowned honey eaters doing acrobatic 
displays, new holland honey eaters, as well as yellow tailed 
black cockatoos and a rufous fantail further into the forest. 
At Audley there was a pair of crested shrike tits eating 
grasshoppers. The resident sulphur crested cockatoos were 
very entertaining, one seemed to be playing pick-a-boo with 
me on the verandah of the dance hall! Another one seemed to 
be saying 'look what i've got', as it was playing with a 
piece of blue balloon in front of us. All in all, the birds 
seemed very curious, and not as shy as what we are used to. 
My partner Jamie caught, who studies the pygmy possum, caught 
one in an area of burnt forest. He was a cute little guy... 
and so was the possum!
