Hi Ralph,

Yellow-rumped Thornbills are quite common in the upper Blue Mountains on
golf courses and in parks, even sometimes in residential streets where they
roost and nest in introduced conifers and feed on lawns, footpaths or
beside the railway line. As far as I know they are not migratory. Flocks
remain in the same places in Katoomba year-round. One place you can see
them is in Catalina Park behind the Katoomba swimming pool. (Not sure if
this falls within your definition of the "greater Sydney area".)
