The winter surveys at Gooroo north were held in very cold but still conditions. Birds were in their typical winter recess, some sites were very quiet but there was at least one species at each site even if only a Magpie. The small birds were as usual congregated into feeding flocks of Weebills, Buff-rumped, Yellow-rumped and Striated Thornbills, Speckled Warbler, White-eared Honeyeater, Brown-headed Honeyeater, Golden Whistler, Grey Shrike-thrush and Scarlet Robin. A nice surprise was a Western Gerygone hiding in one of the feeding flocks, along with the only Grey Fantail seen for the morning. Rosellas of both species were very scarce. Grey Currrawongs called from two widely-separated sites. And one species I don’t think I’ve recorded before during the surveys was the King Parrot, a single male calling loudly until seen on its way by the Noisy Miners.
