Birdline Victoria Update for the week ending 29/4/01

It's been a time for Gang Gangs and Sea-Eagles, with people surprised at the proximity of the Gang Gangs to Melbourne's urban area and large numbers of immature Sea-Eagles being reported from around the state.

However the sighting of the week would have to be the White-fronted Honeyeaters at Leaghur State Forest.
