We have had up to 20 Noisy Friarbirds around (Cook) for the past week or two. Along with a similar number of wattlebirds they have been feasting on lerps on the Red Box.

I have just noticed many of them around my home yesterday and today, after being unusually absent or nearly so, for most of summer.

About week ago I reported that the NF had suddenly disappeared from around my residence in Watson - well they’re back again in big numbers. Red Wattlebird numbers have remained throughout.
