I agree with Barbara. Yesterday was a big day for migrating honeyeaters over Jerrabomberra (NSW). I spent two hours outside during the late morning and many thousands of honeyeaters passed over. The biggest flock was over 100 and there
was another of 740, however, in the main flocks were 40-50. Also a flock of 10 Red Wattlebirds and circling above the action was a Little Eagle(a first for my records of Jerra) being harassed by two Magpielarks.

regulars – Rainbow Lorikeets feeding young, Crested Pigeons, silvereyes, blackbirds, starlings, sparrows, a Willie Wagtail, Eastern Spinebill, Red Wattlebirds, magpies, Yellow-rumped Thornbills etc. b
