One Yellow-tufted honeyeater was seen loosely associated with a mixed feeding flock (MFF)  today at 11.00am approximately. My first ACT sighting of this beautiful species.
THe birds was foraging amongst Eucalypt flowers.
In the same area were Scarlet robins and Speckled Warblers.

The area in question contains several Eucalyptus with leaves like those of E. polyanthemos  but the book doesn't  say these are in flower now. Mt Rogers contains many planted, non-local Eucalypt species.
From Rechner place, Flynn walk up into  the reserve and north to meet the  gravel track. There is a seat and a notice-box. The rough, eroded track up and to the east is where the MFF was active this morning and later in the day.

If anyone is 'collecting' sightings of Scarlet robins I would say that their numbers on Mt Rogers and at Strathnairn (Holt) are similar to numbers in previous years.
