I have regularly seen small numbers of White-plumed Honeyeaters and an odd Red Wattlebird in the bit of riverside parkland between King St and Spencer St, MELBOURNE.  And usually a Little Pied Cormorant or two on the river.  Generally however, very few "real" birds around the CBD.  On the morning train trip through West and North Melbourne it is depressing to see the hundreds of Feral Pigeons in the rail yards.
PS:  Can you recommend a good illustrated book for native flora identification, with emphasis on trees??
