Thanks to everyone who responded. Hopefully the bird will hang around until tomorrow.

Saw it on the beginners walk this morning, where the woolemi pines are on edge of gully.

Has anyone seen or heard the Lewin's Honeyeater at the ANBG in the last few days?


As I have never seen a Lewin's Honeyeater in the ACT I decided to follow up Nicki's report from yesterday, and headed to the botanical gardens early this afternoon. Eventually I located one in a eucalypt about 50 metres from the Joseph Banks building, just north of the row of buildings that includes the cafe. The bird called once, the typical Lewin's machnie gun rattle, and this was the only reason I found it. It was actively foraging and appeared to be loosely associating with a mixed flock that included New Holland, White-eared and Yellow-faced Honeyeaters, Spotted Pardalotes and Brown Thornbills.
