As previously said small to larger groups of Yellow-faced Honeyeater were passing earnestly in a fairly narrow pathway over my house down towards the lower slopes of Mount Taylor.
Flocks ranged from loose groups of 300 down to 20, or to individuals. I wonder to myself how the birds know to stagger their distance from subsequent groups? Innate behaviour, flock panic, family or territorial groups?
Watching ceased at 11.30am when the wind became cold and the sunlight had shifted away, but numbers seemed to be dwindling at his point.
This year there have not been the dense and widespread flocks along Tullaroop Street as in previous years, but thinner groups have been passing over for a longer period of time.
Ebird report later today.
