At Tidbinbilla, a day later on Sunday, during an hour or so walking on
the Fishing Gap Trail, there was constant calling from White-eared
Honeyeaters in sight most of the way. A real 'multitude' - interrupted
by a Spotted Pardalote pair at one point.|
There was a single male Flame Robin near the entrance, and a large
flock of Robins in short grasslands/scrub of the Turkey Hill area
(just across the road from the Gibraltar Rocks trail)- the male nearest
the road appeared to be a Scarlet.
And Marnix's ([canberrabirds] Tidbinbilla - 17 August ) Emu with 4
youngsters was also now in this area, strolling within 10 m of the
road, rather than near the entrance as they were the previous weekend.

Visited Tidbinbilla this afternoon. Notable bird sights were a
multitude of White-eared Honeyeaters and a flock of 20 or so Flame
Robins (all male).
