Rainbow Bee-eaters are starting to move through the Townsville
area.   This evening I estimated there be c1000 coming into to
roost in eucalypt trees in the house yard, this does not include 
birds in other parts of the street.   In past years I have estimated 
 c10000 - c20000 Rainbow Bee-eaters roosting in trees every night
 for several weeks along the street where I live during the autumn
migration.  Several people have mentioned that Bee-eater numbers 
have been down in the southern states this summer.   I shall 
Endeavour to keep a count on Bee-eaters this Autumn.
