have been a feature at the western end of Cooleman Ridge/former Narrabundah Hill pine plantation over the past week.
As for this time last year the species that seem to be triggering them are the dusky woodswallow and red-rumped parrot.  Also pleasing to see amongst them is a good sprinkling of diamond firetails, and the odd late female plumaged white-winged triller/rufous songlark (you need to look very carefully as they're not calling).
A feature is how highly mobile they are.  Coming back an hour later at the dam at the end of Kathner St yesterday morning found it very quiet, whereas at 7 am it was alive with birds.
