took a US visitor out this morning. we started at Tharwa Sandwash, which
yielded, among others, 2 hooded robins and 2 speckled warblers. On to
Namadgi visitors' centre, where the large buff-rumped/yellow-rumped
thornbill flock seen by the COG group a couple of weeks ago was still in
evidence. Several scarlet robins, grey shrike thrush, jacky winters also
around. At the Gudgenby River bridge, no new birds but a wombat enjoying
the sun. Glendale yielded hooded robins, scarlet robins, yellow robins,
white throated and brown treecreepers, and a very large group of satin
bowerbirds - at least 10 in the group (no blue/black males). A quick stop
at the Fyshwick Sewage Ponds for all the expected species - pink-eared,
shovellers, hardhead, blue-billed, chestnut and grey teal, as well as the
2 grebes and coots, swamphens and moorhens, and a brown falcon and
whistling kite.  a total of 56 species after we'd counted the black swans
at the large roundabout.
