Hi all..😊
Just thought I'd write a quick post

Yesterday I was in Bright (vic)
Dropped some friends off with their Mountain bikes at 'Hugget lookout' area, 
just as you start to drive onto a dirt road section. Heard the distinctive 
sound of Gang Gang Cockatoos making their creaking sounds...went looking with 
bino's and discovered 15 Gang Gang Cockatoos and a fair few young ones too, 
hanging upside down and being playful. One young one flew down to a branch not 
far from me down low. Very inquisitive. Such a treat 😊
Not sure if they're always there but...just thought I'd share for those In the 

Also, am camping on the Murray River near Bundalong/Yarrawonga vic area 
and...heard a familiar call in the blossoming gums along the river, grabbed 
bino's, and found a small group of 5 or more Crested shrike tits and a couple 
young ones amongst them too...all foraging and chasing each other...another 
real treat. 
Such a fav bird of mine, so spunky 😊
Happy New Year everyone and Happy Birding for 2017
Kirri 😊
