Two notable recordings: In the area now known as Deniliquin Regional Park
(Riverina, NSW) there are at least two pairs of purple-crowned lorikeets
with one pair breeding in a river redgum and seemingly feeding young at
present. These birds are feeding on black box (Euc. largiflorens) blossom
and lerp on the redgums and the black box. This could be a first ever
confirmed breeding record for NSW(?). These birds were discovered by Stuart
Rankin about a month ago. The other interesting record is that of three
wandering whistle-ducks at the wetlands around Wanganella; only my second
sighting of this species in this district in thirty+ years birding.
