Went for a stroll this afternoon in the eastern end of the Red Hill Nature Reserve (above Kent Street in Deakin). It's getting quite busy there now. Two Gang gangs were either nesting or taking a serious look at nesting sites. See attached photo (taken with a P&S camera at extreme range). The tree was only 20 metres above Kent St.

Also saw and heard a Bower Bird - immature or female, no mistaking the flight, the songs and the colours. I just saw the one but there may have been two. About 200 metres up the hill from Kent St.
