Date: Wednesday, October 9, 2013

Location: Pat's Rest, 300m east of Warnes Scrub, Owen

Red-backed Kingfisher (Todiramphus pyrrhopygius) (1) 1st official sighting on 
the property. Perched in some sugar gums allowing a few photo's before heading 

Black Honeyeater (Certhionyx niger) (2) The juvenile black reported earlier in 
the week is still present, but another juvenile bird has also been located.

White-fronted Honeyeater (Phylidonyris albifrons) (4) 

White-winged Triller (Lalage tricolor) (1) Single male bird.

A visit to the plantation with Chris Steeles to see if the Black Honeyeater was 
still present. It was, and turns out it has been joined by another young bird. 
Probably more surprising was the sighting of a Red Backed Kingfisher. We have 
only ever seen this bird in the area one other time, and that was many years 
ago. White fronted honeyeaters are still present as there is lot's of flowering 
Eremophilas at the moment and a male White Winged Triller was also a bonus. All 
photos were taken by Chris Steeles on a hot and windy morning.
