On Australia day I borrowed my sisters 4WD and went to the Brindies down Blundells creek road. Half way down I also ran into a lot of birds, almost literally, dozens of flame robins, often coming to within 1m as did the grey fantails. 2 satin flycatchers feeding dependent young. Another pair of Satin flycatchers in territorial calling combat with the first. Golden whistlers including dependent young, rufous whistlers, lots of white eared honeyeaters, yellow faced, white naped,


Drove to Warks Rd and heading towards Bendora for 500m where there are quite a few tree ferns, and saw satin bowerbird, fantailed cuckoo, another pair of satin flycatchers, rufous fantail, yellow robins, lots of flame robins, white eareds, white napes, YF, scrubwrens, king parrots, crimson rosellas, and a bird that may be olive whistler juvenile/immature. I checked 6 books at home but still undecided and will have to go to library to check HANZAB. Also heard lyrebird further along and saw another pair of satin flycatchers and rufous fantail. It would have been good to see this area before the fires because it would have looked spectacular. Now it is quite open but still nice. Didn't see any Lewins honeyeaters.
