The species was a winter regular over several years early in my time in
Kambah (from 1985). But not for the last many years. As I don't have
access to even my GBS now. I can't easily access give details. Then again
I went to see one across the road from at the Waniassa primary school in
winter of 2013.


This interesting.  When we first moved into Duffy in 1973 Crescents were
regular visitors.  After a few years they stopped coming and I think
I’ve heard them only a couple of times in the last 20 years.  It would
be nice to think they could be on the comeback trail around here!

I had my “me too� moment this morning when watching a
juvenile/immature Crescent Honeyeater fossicking about various flowering
bushes in several adjacent front gardens. I had wondered since Sandra’s
and Jack’s emails whether we might get some ‘overflow’ into
Gleneagles (Kambah) from the ‘Bidgee corridor.

This is just the second time I’ve recorded the species for my GBS in the
nearly 7 years we’ve been at this house. The previous was an adult male
on 24 Apr 2010.

Always a nice bird to see. And hear – this one was obviously still
learning its own call!
