Sorry Nicki,


Yes I meant Golden Whistler. My fingers just hit the right keys to match my brain.

Hi Alison


As someone else has most probably mentioned to you by now, your Olive Whistler is more likely to be a Golden Whistler, either female or first year male.

A large mixed flock of many Silvereyes, at least two White-plumed Honeyeaters, one Yellow-faced honeyeater and one female Olive Whistler spent some time feeding in Eucalypt and Chinese Elm tree in Higgins this morning. I think this flock is currently resident. The same flock spent time feeding in my back yard on Sunday, with the addition of an Eastern Spinebill. The Silvereyes at least, have been roosting in a thickly foliaged tree two doors down for several weeks now. Not sure what else has been with them as the foliage is too thick.
