The Mt Majura Woodland sites were surveyed on 23 & 26 March 2014, mostly in fine weather. The woodlands were very quiet with 7 of the 9 sites having only between 4 and 9 species each, none of which were smaller than the Noisy Miners which were present at 6 of those sites. One site had a few other mid-size birds like Willy Wagtail and Golden Whistler.  At site #4 we came across a mixed feeding flock which was so busy it was hard to know where to look. This site alone had 19 species, including a Speckled Warbler, 2 Scarlet Robins, both Pardalote species and a White-throated Tree-creeper. This was a very pleasant 10 minutes. There were many Eastern Grey Kangaroos and a few rabbits at nearly all the sites and a Swamp Wallaby at one site. No migrating honeyeaters were seen or heard, although Noisy Friarbirds are still present in many locations. The area in general looked fairly dry, but should have picked up with this week’s rain.
