The hedge you mention at the bottom of Anzac Parade is no more
unfortunately. It has all been cleared as of a month ago.
This is really disappointing considering New Holland Honeyeaters have bred
there at least for the last two years (as per my obs).

New Hollands are in a few spots around town. You’ll often find them if
there’s a patch of Grevillea rosmarinifolia for them to live in. A hedge of
said grevillea on the edge of the carpark at the bottom of anzac parade
sustained what seemed to be dozens of birds. There’s always a few around
the hides at Kellys Swamp. And I remember years ago a small hedge at the
bowling club in Hawker had a couple of birds, and I saw quite a few birds
in western Kambah.

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.
