G'day all

I have just spent a couple of days at Kinglake (ranges north of Melbourne)
and saw a few of the area's bird specialties.  Jehosophat Gully was fairly
quiet but the highlight here was a Rufous Fantail building a nest.
Mountain Creek had Eastern Whipbird, Satin Flycatcher, Lewin's Honeyeater,
Rufous Fantail, Superb Lyrebird and Pilotbird.   Buttermans Track had Satin
Flycatcher, Scarlet Robin, Rufous Whistler (competing males displaying and
calling).  The small patch of forest near where I was staying (Kinglake
itself) had Superb Lyrebird, Brush Cuckoo, Olive Whistler, Rose Robin and
Golden Whistler (nesting).

I was suprised that several species were breeding still.

A good group of species to kick off my 2004 list.
