Nearly up to the shortest day - I always feel spring is on the way once we get past the equinox, even if it takes a while for the daylight to stretch out in any perceptible way.  Good birding, all.
I couldn't agree more. Once the shortest day (the solstice, by the way, not equinox) is gone the birds start gearing up for breeding again. Here in Cooranbong NSW we have Yellow-rumped Thornbills nesting and the Shining Bronze-Cuckoos are getting very vocal. Even my chooks are laying again, a couple of weeks earlier than usual.
Cheers all
