Red-rumped Parrot (Psephotus haematonotus) (2) First time I have seen red-rumps

Date: Saturday, July 13, 2013

Location: Nixon Street, Nairne.

Blue-faced Honeyeater (Entomyzon cyanotis) (2) At 11am today l was telephoned 
by a neighbour wanting to share with someone the fact that she had just seen 
two Blue-faced Honeyeaters in her garden at Nixon Street, Nairne. She is not a 
birdwatcher, but has a general interest in Australian wildlife and is a 
Bushcare volunteer. Her description of the birds matched exactly that  of B-f 
H/E; they were slightly smaller than Red Wattlebird that was harassing them, 
bright blue patch on sides of face, brownish back, large black bib and white 
underparts. I did not see the birds but believe the observer to be reliable.
