A Sacred Kingfisher was sitting quietly on the wires at the north end of Dairy Road this morning, close to the Molonglo. The Yellow-faced Honeyeaters were calling loudly, Grey Fantails and Willie Wagtails were active, and flocks of finches were feeding on the ground. The largest group contained 52 Red-browed Finch as well as 8 Double-barred Finch (plus some House Sparrow, Yellow-rumped Thornbill and Red-rumped Parrot feeding with them).

On our dog-walk on Widgiewa Rd this morning we saw 20 Spotted Pardalotes flying (and calling) heading in a Westerly direction.  A little later, on Whiskers Creek Rd, 25 Yellow-faced Honeyeaters flew over us also migrating in the direction of the mountains.
