I currently live in Brisbane & will be visiting family in Melbourne
February 12th to 24th, staying primarily in Mentone. I hope to make
sometime available for birding.

Could anyone please give me advice about finding any of the following:
Musk Lorikeet                   Striated Fieldwren
Blue Billed Duck                        Shy Heathwren
Blue Winged Parrot              European Treesparrow
Fairy Tern                              Eoropean Greenfinch
Australian Gannet                       European Goldfinch
Grey Currawong                  Gilbert's Whistler
                                        Rufous Whistler

I have been thinking about trying to get to Werribee Sewerage Farm. Is
anyone likely to be going there in this period and wouldn't mind some
company? or is there anyone in Melb southern suburbs who would like to
share some birding time in this period?

Any information much appreciated.

It is sad when one thinks of all the previous time one lived in Melbourne
and took very little notice of the birds and now in a short visit I would
love to go so many places!
