Autumn in Deakin was heralded by the first MFF that I have observed at home this season.  Present were:
  • a flock of about 40 Silvereyes mostly from Tassie
  • a female Golden Whistler
  • Eastern Spinebill
  • Spotted Pardalote
  • Brown Thornbill
  • Superb Fairywrens
  • White-browed Scrubwren.
Last week, the medium-sized Banksia in my front yard heaved under the weight of 12 (or more - they flew off while I circled the tree to count them) Yellow-tailed Black Cockatoos.
Also last week, a familiar cackle overheard drew my attention to two Noisy Friarbirds flying NW.  They were the first NFBs I had observed here for over two months.  I thought they were gone for the season.
