Lewin's Honeyeater. Isn't that a vagrant in the ACT? A good find.
With regard to wet forest birds, Peter Fullager told me at one of the lyrebird surveys last year that they had failed to record Pilotbird, Wonga Pigeon or Red-browed Treecreeper on the tapes they leave out at Tidbinbilla to record lyrebirds, at least that's how I remember the conversation going. I haven't seen/heard any of these species since the fires. Cicadabird is another one, I know the odd one has been seen at Majura etc, but these would surely be migrants on the move. Has anyone seen or heard them in the mountains over the last few months? In November 2002 (ie before the fires) we estimated as many as 10 were calling along the first km or so of Fishing Gap Trail. Being a canopy species conditions may not suit them I guess.
