I noticed quite a few flocks of Yellow-faced Honeyeaters today also,
here at Toronto on the western side of Lake Macquarie. I suppose that
their migration is starting. It would be interesting if others could
take note over the next month of where, when and what direction that
they see yfhe fly in over the next month. I imagine that birding-aus
members cover a fair proportion of SE Australia (besides other locales)
and could provide a really interesting body of information on yfhe
migration over a large area in a relatively short period of time. Many
hands make light work and so on! Then again maybe too many hands spoil
the broth!

Anyway, just an idea.
