I returned from Vietnam on 8 January to my property on the outskirts of 
Armidale, NSW to discover that the Angophora sp trees were in flower. 
Commensurate with this event were rather vocal and moderately large numbers of 
Scarlet Honeyeater, calling, singing and feeding at the inflorescences. I note 
Angophoras are flowering in the neighbourhood and around town, however, I was 
wondering just to what extent this event was taking place? And if anyone else 
had observed a similar had enjoyed a similar encounter with Scarlet Honeyeaters 
I would be most interested to hear form them. I checked with my neighbour and 
to my surprise she has not seen any at all. This is the first time in our 4.6 
years of ownership of this property other than two brief sightings of single 
birds that we have encountered this species on our property.
