Tuggeranong Hill was surveyed on 23 November, on a fine, mild and still morning. Very few small birds were observed in subsites, but small numbers of several species were seen in between.  Five of seven sites had one or two Noisy Friarbirds, and at subsite 4 a pair was feeding young in a nest metres from last year’s nest site.  The Rainbow Lorikeets have now increased to 8, with 2 at sub-site 2 in a hollow and 6 at subsite 3.  Australian Magpies had dependant young and Common Mynas and Common Starlings were carrying food into hollows. It was nice to see a Speckled Warbler, albeit between subsites.  Twenty-one species were observed during the surveys, with a further fifteen elsewhere on the Hill.
