The last two mornings I have added both pardalotes, Satin Bowerbird, Noisy Miner, Red-rumped Parrot, Silvereye, blackbird, King Parrot, Sulphur-crested Cockatoo, Buff-rumped Thornbill, sparrow. 

About a week ago, the Buff-rumped Thornbills were working over the back yard checking out various possible nesting materials like a bit of dog hair and a feather. 

Recent mornings I've heard the resident bowerbirds making what I like to call the 'telephone ring' call. From my observations, it's a short, subtle call that is usually made very early in the morning during the warmer (displaying?) months of the year. Anyone got the relevant hanzab volume handy??

So many birds calling over the first hour of a cold yet bright sunny morning at my home in Hawker:

Magpie Lark
Eastern Spinebill
Brown Thornbill
White-browed Scrubwren
Superb Fairy-wren
Eastern Rosella
Crimson Rosella
Pied Currawong
Rainbow Lorikeet
Red Wattlebird

The only one missing from this morning was the recent regular Golden Whistler.

At about 8.00am a group of ten Yellow-tailed Black-Cockatoos landed in the neighbour's casuarinas and fed there for about 20 minutes.

A pretty good start to the day!
