A flock of 7 Swift Parrots flew past me at about 1400 today in the heart of Mulligan's Flat, near the dam where the Black Honeyeaters were seen first. I searched the various flowering eucalypts in the vicinity but was unable to locate them.

Further east, near to the sanctuary fence, I found several Southern Whiteface amidst a large mixed species feeding flock.

Significantly, several of the feeding flocks included adult male Golden Whistlers today. It has been about 10 years since I observed this last. If it keeps raining, maybe even Eastern Yellow Robins might reappear at Mulligan's Flat?
