First real sign of honeyeater movements over home in Kambah on Sunday, with mainly small groups of fewer than ten birds moving from SW to NE (usual direction for my place) between 10 am and midday. Largest flock was 45 birds. Estimated 120 birds over the two hours but I wasn’t keeping a very close watch.

Today for the first time I noticed YFHEs migrating in loose flocks in Canberra. It was a perfect warm calm day.


# A flock of 10 birds at Lake Jerrabomberra at lunchtime.

# Another flock of 10 birds at Isabella Pond at 2.30pm moving along lake margins in Casuarina.

No cold snap yet and little rain.  But days are shortening   No reports of
yellow faced honey eaters on the move. Perhaps people have been seeing them
and not reporting them moving through the suburbs?  Other years there have
been reports before now.  Must still be food in the mountains. Any reports
