I sympathise with Alan and Hazels recent comments on the paucity of birds in the ACT,I have to show an Irish Birdo around next month,might abandon proceedings to the Coast,but I would like to report that on Sunday,as the Cold front seemed to start moving through there were large numbers of birds moving perhaps with it,in particularly large numbers of both Spotted and Striated Pardelotes and Striated Thornbills in the tree tops behind Mackenzie St,in Hackett,they were not in evidence earlier in the week,there were also good numbers of Silvereyes,brown thornbills and a Brown Headed honeyeater which is a good bird for me....A large feeding group of more than 30 forest birds were in evidence close to the Concrete electricity pill Box between Ainslie and Majura including the Speckled Warblers that eluded the Wrights ...lots of immature Golden Whistlers and the high point of the Afternoon a pair of Flame Robins,most encouraging....There were also Sittellas and a Little Falcon...Today,Tuesday,on my run up Mt Majura there was a single Painted Quail in the Gulley above the Low Level Reservoir in Hackett...all in all over the weekend there were 23 birds,and thats reasonable for my neck of the woods...The Tawny Frogmouths and G Butcher Birds are still semi Resident in my Garden,so I am feeling less despondant.... Good Birding,Terry Gourlay...
