Hi Chris

I'm writing this is a snotty tone cos that's one way to do it.
As Steve Waugh suggested yesterday about Michael Slater in
Mombai/Bombay, I'm sure that with better coaching I could do it
better. :-)  :-)

All good people - me especially - would NEVER post anything on
Birding-Aus without first checking the wonderful (and now even
more accessible - thanks) archive.

You said on Friday 2/3/2001: 

"On tonights episode of the long-running channel 10 Aussie
soap-opera, Neighbours, Harold was most upset when a teenage
neighbour accidently fired off a rifle and shot a bird in his
backyard.  And what did he claim was the bird that was shot?  A
Helmeted Honeyeater.  Perhaps a new species for the
Edinsborough area?"


See the following posting from Nov 1999 which PROVES there are
Helmeted Honeyeaters in Edinsborough.

Mind you, it doesn't prove that Edinsborough exists.

Hi all,
I wonder if there is anyone else out there who was as confused
as me about alleged sightings of Helmeted Honeyeaters in
suburban Melbourne.  I have just been told by a most reliable
source that the claim was part of an episode of Neighbours on
Channel 10.
I obviously don't spend enough time watching TV, apart from
nature shows that is...
