I've just returned to Cunnamulla, Qld after birding around the Eulo area
and thought Birding Aus members would be interested to know that there
appears to be an influx of nomadic honeyeaters just past Bindegolly bridge
on the way to Thargomindah (from a point approx 7kms from the bridge).
Over 2 days across a 15km stretch I pulled over at six places (the common
denominator was the presence of a small pool of water, mulga dripping with
flowering mistletoe and gums heavy with buds about to blossom.  Within
seconds, at all stops,  I got onto good numbers of Black HEs and
White-fronted HEs and (at one site) also a Painted HE.  They all have very
distinctive calls and so are easy to get onto them as they are calling all
the time.  Also loads of Crimson Chats are all about the areas.  The whole
area is generally green and has water so it's generally birding at it's
best out here at the moment.
