Yes Muriel  -  see below from this morning.  Around same area as in previous years and at least 4 going by the calls.


I think your SB nest should be followed up and happy to do it if you give me more precise directions (maybe point out).  While the timing for nest-building might be JUST within the breeding limits in HANZAB I note that the 2 documented nesting records (by 2001 anyway  -  see JH in CBN 26:1) were in November.

4 Crescent Honeyeaters zipping around in the ANBG yesterday am in the

Sydney Gully region just north-east of the semi-circular seat. And

another flew across the Rockery lawn.

Also in the gully region 3 Satin Bowerbirds, and a female emerging

from a nest in a tree right by the path.
