I encountered a flock of at least 20 Double-barred Finches at Pine Island north this afternoon. That seemed a lot to me, notably with no Red-browed Finches with them

Yesterday when driving through the intersection of Hindmarsh drive and Jerrabomberra Ave a flock of at least 200 Little Corellas were feeding on the ground, and totally ignoring the motoring masses.

I have just returned from an expedition to Tallagand SF where there were a few avian highlights.  
  • On the way there a flock of at least 30 Double-barred Finches were feeding on the verge of Plains rd, Hoskinstown;
  • When we got to Palarang Rd a Spotted Quail did an "exit stage left" and while walking up a track nearby there were constant calls from at least three Eastern Whipbirds;
  • On the way home about 4km on the Hoskinstown side of Rossi village a Spotted Harrier posed very nicely on a fence post before ghosting off along a creekline.
