Resending a message I posted on Sunday…


Michael Wright and I braved a cold Canberra morning to visit Callum Brae today. It was well worth the visit.


Highlights were a solitary Rainbow Lorikeet, (my first for the ACT), two Long-billed Corellas inspecting a nest hollow, at least two Jacky Winters (sighted at different parts of the park) and at least three Diamond Firetails in a mixed feeding flock.


Early in the walk and after commenting on the lack of honeyeaters, we found White-plumed, White-eared, Fuscous and White-naped in a single tree. We later found Brown-headed Honeyeaters near the entrance as we were leaving.


The Jacky Winters are a clincher for me that spring is just around the corner.
