If you're lucky Carol will read this email and tell you the names and
addresses of each of these species and where they are right now and
will be on thursday next week.
Thanks for your confidence Evan - if only it was that easy! I do most
of my birding in the upper mountains and on the western side, but
certainly no shortage of Crescent Honeyeaters at the moment up here.
They're hanging around wherever the banksias are in flower, such as
Narrow Neck at Katoomba, or the clifftop track near Gordon Falls at
Leura. I had one in my garden the other day, close to the centre of
I'm sure there's no such thing as a really reliable site for
Gang-gangs but the best place I know is the Mt Tomah Botanic Gardens.
Concentrate on the area around the Brunet Meadow. Mt Wilson, as Evan
suggested, is also good. But at this time of year they could be
literally anywhere in the mountains. While you're on that side of the
mountains, try Mt Banks for White-eared Honeyeaters. They can be
found along the track which leads to the picnic area. Watch out also
for Tawny-crowned along here.
For White-eareds you could also try Martin's Lookout at Springwood,
though it's a while since I've been there. They often have a
preference for recently burnt bushland.
By the way, I recently did a big update to the News page of my
website, which includes a run-down of local sightings in the first
half of this year as well as Capertee Valley happenings, and some
great photos from David Stowe, Nevil Lazarus and others. Go to:
