Hi Everyone


In the last century there appeared to be, for a couple of summers, a resident New Holland in the shrubbery at the front of the Hawker Bowling Club, but it disappeared when they removed the shrubbery.

Here in the wilds of Florey, our Banksia gets fairly regular (i.e. at least once a year) visitations from NH Honeyeaters. The last was in Early December when, as I recall, it hung around for 2 or 3 days.

So might I, but despite being almost within sight of the NBG, and with a bird-friendly garden, in 20 years here I've never seen one.
