Recently, Black & Pied Honeyeaters were reported at Mildura by Barry
McLean and at Hattah by Penny Drake-Brockman.

Last Sunday, Black & Pieds were also at Morgan, SA  in exactly the same
spot I saw them several years ago.  It is currently pretty dry around
Morgan but the Eremophlia is flowering.  There were 2 Black & 20 Pied,
along with one Redthroat 2km West of Morgan (34 02 62  139 38 34).

There were also 6 Appostlebirds about 17 km West of Morgan ( 33 56 24
139 28 63).  This is the furthest West I have seen them.

Another good bird was one Freckled duck at Tanunda Ponds (34 32 28  138
56 34) in the Barossa Valley along with Pink-eared, Shovelers, Hardhead,
Grey & Chestnut Teal and Black Duck.
