Hi All,

This morning the Blue Mountains Bird Observers had a walk along the Nature
Trail at Wentworth Falls.  We didn't get very far.  Most of our time was
spent sitting on a rock ledge about treetop height watching the honeyeater
migration.  As expected, most of the birds were Yellow-faced with smaller
numbers of White-naped, Silvereyes and Spotted Pardalotes.  We lost count of
the numbers but there must have been hundreds of birds.
At one stage they were joined by about 50 Noisy Friarbirds, also flying
north, and I also saw 2 or 3 Fuscous Honeyeaters among the throng.  This is
not a bird you expect to see at Wentworth Falls.
A Brown Falcon caused a bit of a flurry when it flew through the mob, but
did not appear to catch anything.

Jill Dark.
Hazelbrook, Blue Mountains.
