G'day Birders,
                    I went to Mulligans Flat Nature Reserve on Saturday to 
check out the Black Honeyeater as reported by Marnix Zwankhuizen last week. 
Armed with a great set of instructions, compass, GPS and bins I headed off 
along the track. After about 35 minutes I found a group of about 10 very chatty 
and friendly birders (not at all like the birders I meet at Kooragang 3 weeks 
ago). Before long the we were all rewarded to great views of a male and female 
Black Honeyeater in a dead mistletoe at the top of a large eucalypt. Apparently 
a Painted Honeyeater had been seen chasing the Black honeyeater, but I missed 
this, but did get great views of a pair of Little Lorrikeets, White-browed 
Woodswallow, Leaden Flycatchers and surprisingly a Grey Currawong (not what I 
was expecting but apparently not unusual).

In all there were about 14 birders looking for the bird on Saturday evening.
