Hi David, thanks for your warm welcome to the COG Chatline.

I'm amazed by the exquisite photography of the COG website and the COG database is a fascinating encyclopaedic insight into bird behaviour in the ACT.

Great to share the sighting with everyone and a fantastic reward for Red Hill Regenerators and indeed all the park care groups who are working hard to bring the birds back into Canberra, hopefully the first of many more sightings in urban Canberra!

I'm sorry to hear that my Wednesday posting on the chatline which included an _expression_ of my faith may have caused offence to some, in my joyful exuberance to share I lost sight of the fact that COG is a large umbrella organisation with a diversity of views and opinions. Causing offence was not my intention and I offer my sincere apology to those affected, and I'll endeavour to be more thoughtful in any future posts I make.

Kind regards and blessings, Roy :-)

Thanks for resizing and posting, Roy.
You were right, of course: a Yellow-tufted Honeyeater for sure.
We get few records of this species in the ACT, just 4-6 in most years.
Thanks for sharing it with the list.
Regards - David

Observed just below the Red Hill Restaurant on Wednesday afternoon, facing the Brindabellas. Any suggestions for an ID?

Kind regards and blessings, Roy.
