The Mt Majura woodland surveys were conducted over the past two cold and crisp mornings. We had 32 species in total over the nine sites. The first five sites, always the most interesting, proved so again with a couple of mixed flocks. Highlights included at least 4 Scarlet Robins, 3 Golden Whistlers including a fully coloured male, Speckled Warblers, Striated and Brown Thornbills, Superb Wrens and an unusual one for these sites, 5 Red-browed Finches. Numerous species of honeyeater were found at a couple of sites including Brown-headed, White-eared, White-plumed, Yellow-faced and Eastern Spinebill. No Common Bronzewings were seen, which was unusual.


Some of the Yellow Box (?) and mistletoe is flowering. Of interest were a number of magpies feeding on a carcass of a kangaroo.
