 Sorry, when I wrote this, I meant I heard an Eastern Spinebill calling, not just the Koel.

And the molting started. I counted nearly 30 feathers (notably currawong, magpie, cocky and eastern rosella) on a 100m stretch from our driveway to the next corner today - and that was just on one side of the footpath.

Hi all

Geoffrey was here (Ainslie) looking for the juv Koel the other day and mentioned that Eastern Spinebills are more of a winter bird in this part of the country. 
Lo and behold I heard one calling in the front garden about 2 hours after Geoffrey left and again yesterday.

The calistemons have started flowering. 

And the Koels certainly don't have any wintery inclinations. "Our" adult male is calling as I am writing this.
