I was down at Banyule the other day (in NE Melbourne) and Musks were
certainly the dominant species. There were upwards of 200 very noisily
feeding in the flowering eucies (what type I dunno - I'm an economist).
Sure were noisy, and I've never seen this many before at once. They were
accompanied by a couple of Rainbow lorikeets, but no more than that. The
Bell miners seemed to given them plenty of room. I think a mob that big was
far too much for them too!

Hi Tony and others
Usually each summer hundreds of Musk Lorikeets fly over our house travelling
south at sunrise and north at sunset, but this summer their numbers have
much reduced. I wonder why. Changed weather conditions perhaps?
Do you have more Musks than usual this year Tony?
