Hi Jack

Orioles have already passed through The Basin in the Dandenong Ranges National
Park, and some have taken residence for the summer in Lysterfield National Park,
both parks about 40 kms east of Melbourne.

My blackbird is currently exercising an extensive repertoire at dawn each
morning, and the oriole gets a mention along with crimson rosella and ger shrike

Last week a sacred kingfisher stopped in The Basin but has moved on. Last year a
pair nested in Lysterfield NP.

Crimson rosellas and king parrots are the common birds in The Basin and may be
spreading into the nearer suburbs.
