Hi Folks

This past week I have spent some time in a few different reserves.

At the O'Connor Ridge I heard what I believed to be a White-Throated Gerygone.  It was in the area off the main street.  I also heard the same call in the Black Mountain Reserve today.  There was also a pair of pardalotes (striated) nesting in a hollow, or so I believe as they were frequenting a knob on the tree.  I didn't see the hollow as I was uphill of it and it was facing downhill (VERY steep).  Another, unidentified, pardalote was also seen flying out of a small hole in the side of a small bank against a dirt road at the Lyneham Ridge.  This was situated very close to a green building in the reserve.  Finally, a pair of spotted pardalotes were examining a tiny hollow in one of the trees in Mulligan's Flat last Sunday.  This was observed towards the end of the COG walk.
