Olive-backed Oriole calling at Mount Majura Vineyard yesterday and smaller waves of Yellow-faced Honeyeaters, Silvereye, Red Wattlebirds, Black-faced Cuckoo-Shrike and Noisy Friarbirds have continued the past week.  The vineyard, post-vintage, is a perfect place for their 'sugar fix' during migration, as all the nets are off and little human activity remains amongst vines (aside from me cursing and swearing at vine canes and tendrils whilst pre-pruning and fixing trellis systems). The first Robins (Scarlet) for the season were also noticed yesterday.

Might have been the same one at my place yesterday.  It appeared to have a less then orange bill.

I noted an adult Olive-backed Oriole in the garden this morning and a Leaden Flycatcher at the Gungahlin Homestead on Thursday so some migrants are still around.
