Thank you all for the feedback. As a young birder, I am especially appreciative of the advice. We will head back out at dusk over the next few nights and try to see them again.

Subject: [canberrabirds] Large group of roosting Brown Thornbills
Hi all,
An interesting observation in my backyard yesterday was a large group of roosting Brown Thornbills. In the photo (, there are 17 birds (we think), but in total there were 24 in this group. Is this a normal observation for this species? They are commonly seen in my yard, but usually only a few at a time.
