The autumn surveys at Gooroo north were dominated by the larger birds. Rosellas of both species were in profusion. Noisy Miners were also abundant, roaming in mobs beyond their normal haunts to areas they are not normally recorded and feeding in the heavily-flowering mistletoe. Several Grey Butcherbirds were heard in different sections of the reserve.
The only small bird which was found at most sites was the Spotted Pardalote. Other small birds such as thornbills, weebills, fantails, whistlers etc. were clustered into large feeding flocks, as they usually are at this time of year, but the flocks did not coincide with the survey sites.
Scarlet Robins were calling at several locations. Summer migrants still present included Oriole and both gerygone. Eastern Spinebill were feeding on the mistletoe, a lone White-naped Honeyeater passed through, Also recorded were White-eared and Brown-headed Honeyeaters, Grey Currawong, and the usual Brown Goshawk. No Hooded Robins found, and they haven't been seen for several surveys now.
