Hi All
Yellow -rumped Thornbills are also regulars near to the Yaralla Estate, Concord, especially in the the Melalucas and Casuarinas behind Concord RSL. I saw them nest building there 2 years ago.
There used to be a regular pair of Jacky Winter too, but I haven't sighted them for over 12 months.

Hi Birders,Ralph Read enquired as to where he could find Yellow-rumped Thornbills in the Greater Sydney Region. According to the bible, ie The Birds of Sydney 1991 by Ernie Hoskin, Yellow-rumped Thornbills, although a declining species as the rural areas gradually become urbanised, they still can be found in Centennial Park in Sydney's east.
