         Sydney, particularly in the West, has been so dry and hot that plant 
growth with its associated bird feed including insects has bee exceptionally 
scarce and birds are dying of starvation,  often near water in my experience 
when it has been very hot. Miners  often dive onto water to bathe and scoop up 
up a drink, possibly are just too weak to fly out again.
