Two quite unrelated, but (hopefully) interesting obs.
1. On Sunday 2 April, at Tianjara Creek bridge (on the Sassafras road in
northern Morton NP, in the sandstone south of Sydney) a small group - at
least 4, probably more based on calls - of male Scarlet HEs. I assume they
were moving north. No big deal to many probably, but I don't go near the
coast much, and while regular, they're certainly not common south of Sydney.
2. On Monday 3 April, in our Canberra back yard, a pair of Gang-gangs being
unmercifully assaulted by a flock of choughs, until they retired. The
galahs, present at the same time, were ignored. Any thoughts?
Thanks, and cheers
