The woodland survey of the eastern lower slopes of Mt Ainslie (9 sites) was carried out by Robin Hide and Michael Lenz on 23 September 2019. The morning was cool with light to moderate wind. Showers started only after the survey was finished. Song activity was rather suppressed, this meant checking any Gerygone whether the short song phrases really belonged to a Western Gerygone or a restrained White-throated Gerygone!
The most wide-spread species were Crimson Rosella and Noisy Miner (8x), Australian Magpie (7x), Galah and Grey Fantail (5x). Several species of small bush birds were presented only in small numbers or absent. Of note: a mixed flock of Rufous and Golden Whistlers, Olive-backed Orioles (2), Dusky Woodswallows (5), 2 ♂ White-winged Trillers feeding in grassland, Tree Martins (5). Western and White-throated Gerygone; a pair of White-throated Treecreepers collecting nest material and a Noisy Miner with a completed nest.
