I have just had my first ever Yellow-tufted Honeyeater in my Kaleen yard feeding on the lerps on a Eucalyptus lansdowniana. It is also species number 721 on my year list – I am aiming for 1000 species in a calendar year. I have been to Malaysian Borneo, Peninsula Malaysia, northern India, Sulawesi and Java so far this year. I still have a lot of common species locally to pick up and with the trip to Iron Range, via western Queensland, in November this year feel I should make the magic number. The idea came from a trip I did with Ian Fraser last year to Chile where those on the bus had the pleasure of seeing Ian get his 1000th bird for the year – a White-tailed Kite.
