Another 40 - 50 WTNT at 7:20 EST this morning, 5 January 2002.  Birds very
low - 2 metres to 20 metres.  None sighted higher than this.  Some below eye
level when sighted from our rear deck (single story low set house) weaving
between trees.

Weather conditions are 8/8 altostratus, 25° C, nil wind and very high
humidity.  Forecast is for some rain and possible evening thunder storms.

Great views as they race across the road and yard below eye level.

Yesterday, a Noisy Friarbird took exception to the presence of a WTNT in its
area and tried to attack.  Talk about the tortoise and the hare.  One VERY
puzzled Friarbird looking around to find what it was chasing.
