I spent yesterday in searing heat (36 degrees) out at Tidbinbilla. Naturally there wasn't much activity with birds confined to the cool creek gullies. There was a lot of honeyeater activity - YELLOW-FACED, WHITE-NAPED & WHITE-EARED HONEYEATERS. The highlight was a vocal family group of CRESCENT HONEYEATERS. The parents and independent youngster (still with yellow gape) were constantly calling to each other. A single NEW HOLLAND HONEYEATER was also present along with heaps of SATIN BOWERBIRDS (all green birds). Other birds included YELLOW-TAILED BLACK-COCKATOOS and DUSKY WOODSWALLOWS.
