On Thursday evening our garden at Carwoola was full of birds including at a minimum 20 Yellow-faced honeyeaters at one time (which is what I have shown on my GBS chart).  The various flocks - I would estimate accumulating to 100 birds) all wafted off to the East.  I haven't seen a bird of fthis species since.

Saw this morning two small flocks (four and five) of Yellow-faced
Honeyeaters flying north. They were seen from the Square Rock walking
track at an altitude of 1320 m. Also saw two Lyrebirds on the Corin Road
this morning. This is two more than all the Lyrebirds I have seen on all
COG region roads in the past 20 years.
