A 3 hour bike ride around Mulligans Flat and Goorooyarroo Reserves on Saturday afternoon produced around 40 species. I stopped to check out some of the lesser visited sites in the far north and east of Mulligans and the adjacent section of Goorooyarroo, but couldnt find any Red-capped or Hooded Robins. Can anyone tell me when and where they were last seen?

I did find (but only 2) Scarlet Robins, Varied Sittella, Brown-headed Honeyeater, Western Gerygone (3 separate birds calling), Noisy Friarbird (birds calling in both reserves), Tree Martin, Yellow Thornbill, 5 Common Bronzewing, and what sounded like a Shining Bronze-Cuckoo which I couldnt then find.

What was interesting was listening to at least 3 Grey Butcherbirds calling close to dusk within several 100 metres of each other on the Mulligans-Goorooyarroo border.

In addition to this my brother on his morning walk that day also spotted a Crested Shrike-tit in woodland close to the small set of dams and a pair of Little Corellas by the large dam. I could find neither that afternoon on my ride.
