Hi Paul

A week ago in Cooma I observed flocks of 20 or so yfhe's moving through town. 
Yesterday near Moss Vale there were flocks of up to 60 birds moving through.

I am interested to know what triggers the migration. It has been suggested that 
the first really cold night in the region sets them off. I don't know much 
about migration patterns. Anyone have any info to share?

Hello everyone,
I was not locked up in my airconditioned office today (Saturday) and I
noticed that there were a few small flocks (5-8) of Yellow-facced
honeyeaters moving through suburban Scullin in the ACT.  It has been an
unusually long how and dry summer and I personally have not seen any
Yellow-faced honeyeaters since spring.  Has anyone else seen any movement
this week.  I don't suppose they would have noted the end of daylight saving
occurs tonight.
