On Saturday night at about 8.30 pm, I was reading messages on the
computer - I became aware of a lot of sustained bird-type twittering. I
went outside to check.
I should say that we live in Ivanhoe, close to the Yarra River in
The noise continued for at least half an hour, probably longer - a
high-pitched peep-peep calling, rather faint and at the limits of my
elderly hearing - definitely up above me in the air. From time to time
the sound died down, then increased again, perhaps as individual flocks
came over. They appeared to be moving eastwards.
I wondered if it was migrating Silvereyes. It sounded about the right
sort of pitch.
