This may be common enough, but it is the first time I have seen yellow-faced honeyeaters on Callum Brae.  I have usually found them along the Murrumbidgee Corridor.  There were a party of four that I counted, though there may have been more, all near the Mugga Lane entrance.    The one in the photo is pretty young, and perhaps they were a family group.  I wonder where the chicks were reared? 

Also there, I saw/heard striated thornbills, red-browed finch, leaden flycatcher, sacred kingfisher, grey fantail, choughs, kookaburras, superb fairy-wrens, magpie, crimson rosella, ravens, black-faced cuckoo shrike, white-throated treecreeper and white-browed scrub wren.  And they were all seen/heard while I was sitting in the one place.

Has anyone seen brown goshawks on Callum Brae recently?
