Two golden whistlers (a first for me) in a eucalyptus near corner of Mugga Way 
and Flinders Way, plus several red wattle birds and some small birds, probably 
thornbills of some kind. The  wattle birds  seemed unusually yellow in colour 
on their bellies. Are there variations or is this seasonal?  Plus eastern and 
crimson rosellas and king parrots  often sen  around here. Red browed finches 
at a feeding station in a garden in Torres Street, with several spotted doves.

And last week a solitary grey butcher bird on the power lines behind  
Calthorpes  House.  Which enabled me to identify a mystery bird seen twice in 
my garden  near Manuka in the past couple of weeks.
