Came across a Red-banked Kingfisher this morning along a creek near Tharwa. Also a Rufous Songlark which is one of the few I have seen this season. A Pied Butcherbird was piping off in the distance. Plenty of Trillers and White-browed Woodswallows, including some on nests (didn't see any Masked). One of the male woodswallows reeled off a melody of mimicry, incorporating Spiny-cheeked Honeyeater and a snippet of Whistling Kite. If I closed my eyes to the fact I was amongst snowgums I could have been beside a far inland river..... until a couple of King Parrots cam chattering into the site.
