Painting railings/bannisters of our back deck last
Friday AM. 5 White-throated needletails circling overhead (Mike T please
note), Superb Fairy-wrens in shrubbery, many Silvereyes feeding on dreaded
Chinese Elm berries (not in our yard), half a dozen Brown Honeyeaters flitting
about chasing each other, juvenile Dollarbird vigorously chasing a
Spangled Drongo around, juv. Koel pestering Magpie-lark foster parents with
female Koel nearby, Kookaburra lands on my newly painted railing, 25+ very noisy
Noisy Miners flush out Brown Gossie from large tree, plenty of Scaly-breasted
and Rainbow Lorikeets flying by, 4 Crested Pigeons land in yard, Magpies on the
footpath, BFCS family flying around, Grey Butcherbirds x 3, plenty of Torresian
Crows while several Welcome Swallows and a couple of Fairy Martins have
replaced the Needletails.
Then there were also 35+ Common Mynahs milling
about on the ground - where was the Gossie?
