a very vocal crescent honeyeater at CSIRO end of Sydney Gully this morning feeding in low shrubs . A visiting US birder saw a rose robin at the ANBG over the weekend - but no sign of it this morning.


I wonder if that was what I was trying to find yesterday around lunchtime. Very strident calls that I had never heard before, but elusive enough that I couldn't track it down to work out what it was (and didn't have time to check more thoroughly). No binoculars either unfortunately. Very distinct call, that I hadn't heard in the gardens previously.

If it was the same thing I heard yesterday then it shouldn't be too hard to notice it, as you couldn't miss the calls.
