Hi Jack
That is pretty much the spot Brown Gerygone has been seen at the Bot Gs in some other years. Every time I visit I check it out just in case. It would be nice to think that birders who don't use eBird might have seen one more recently than 3 years ago. Any reports on Canberra Nature Map?

Has anyone recorded this species at the ANBG this winter?  It has been a winter visitor there in the past but there appear to be no records for it on eBird for the past 3 winters.


Late this morning at the ANBG I thought I was watching a Brown Thornbill but there were no clear striations on the throat/upper chest which instead was greyish.  It was also very actively gleaning upwards in a small tree in quite a different manner from the Brown Thornbills which are often present in my garden.  So worth looking out for, it was off the path about halfway along between near the top of the rainforest gully and the waterfall in the rocks area.
