Red Wattlebirds have been hard to find around Carwoola recently. 

Until yesterday there had been a trickle of Yellow Faced Honeyeaters still coming through my GBS site (with a more sustained movement evident frmo the Western end of Widgiewa Road to the edge of the Hoskintown Plain).  Today I haven't seen or heard one YFHE.

Whilst reading Jack's observation given in the 'What to watch out for this month' section of the May 2009 Gang-gang, I recalled that I saw a flock of 29 Red Wattlebirds flying northerly towards a remnant Yellow Box next to Sulwood Drive, Wanniassa, on the morning of Saturday 25 April.

Have also had Double-barred Finch near to and flying over my place in Kambah on a couple of occasions recently, which is the first time I've recorded this species within the suburb, but admittedly it is only about 500m away from the Mt Taylor Nature Reserve.
