There must one or two around this area. I saw one on Saturday afternoon in a leafless deciduous tree near my letter box in Giralang. I'd never seen one before. They are more striking than I expected.

A solitary Yellow-tufted Honeyeater was observed this morning at around 10:30 in the northern part of Mulligan's Flat.  I have not seen this species previously in this reserve.  Has anyone else?

It was neither feeding nor associating with any other birds.  It perched as if resting for almost a minute atop a dead Acacia dealbata and then departed in a more-or-less northerly direction.
