Hi Birders,
While carrying out my seasonal surveys of bush birds for Wyong Shire(NSW Central Coast) this week I noted an upsurge in the number of Yellow-faced Honeyeaters and Spotted Pardalotes. Can anyone say whether the migration of the Honeyeaters through the ACT and the Blue Mountains got underway? I have always assumed that the movement was from the alpine eucalyptus forest of Victoria and southern NSW to coastal NSW north of Sydney and to the inland woodlands. In view of the vast amount of Alpine forests burnt out this summer, are there many honeyeaters left to migrate? Have the usual known routes been burnt out?
