A similar story in Barton the past two weeks, a pair of Ironbarks attracting over a dozen of them throughout the afternoon consistently day after day. I have never seen so many in one spot.

This morning I used my grocery shopping as a reason to walk in Kaleen. I parked near Kaleen South Oval where Noisy Friarbirds were busy in the trees. My walk took me along Shannon Cct and Alberga St, parallel to Ginninderra Dr. This area is planted with prolifically flowering ironbarks, which were full of Noisy Friarbirds, swooping between trees and calling loudly. The friarbirds greatly outnumbered the Red Wattlebirds that were also enjoying the feast. I am accustomed to seeing one or two friarbirds and not the overwhelming abundance present today. It was delightful!
