A similar story here in the Blue Mountains. Yesterday morning whilst
driving down the mountains toward Sydney, I noticed numerous flocks of
migrating honeyeaters going over the highway.
The spring migration has begun.



PS I'm currently watching two Red Wattlebirds busily gathering nectar from
a flowering plum across the road. Not a flower you normally think of as
being bird-attracting.
