Hello all 
It's a little wet up here at the moment.  Birds recorded recently in my 
garden include the usual flock of Chestnut-breasted Mannikins plus a few 
Yellow-rumped; and two immature birds, Helmet Friarbird, and Yellow 
Oriole.  White-gaped Honeyeaters also have young.  White-throated 
Honeyeaters are now a regular in my garden.  For  years after Cyclone 
Tracy they were quite hard to find in the inner suburbs.  Howeve I rarely 
get owls in the garden any more, courtesy I think, of all the clearing 
that's occurred in the nearby mangroves.  

I'm presently looking at doing some further study and would like to 
combine a couple of my areas of expertise - Aboriginal people and natural 
history (birdwatching) tourism.  My relatives in Arnhemland are keen for 
me to do this .
