Yes. That abundance of White-winged Trillers this season, is as commented on earlier. Including my 30 or thereabouts at the site I did near Tharwa for the blitz. They were at the Kambah Pool top car park area at mid day yesterday also, not many, maybe about 5. Actually the area was full of birds, most notably many displaying Rufous Whistlers. Several female Rufous Whistlers constantly singing and chasing each other with that seesawing display with tail spread and head and tail held high. In contrast the several male Rufous Whistlers were also singing against each other but at a distance, so only vocal interactions.

There were twenty or so feeding this morning along the Curtin Bike Track between Curtin and Yarralumla Creek (where the Horse Paddocks are on the other side of the Creek) around 7 this morning. I have never seen them there before.
