Hi All,


We have been in the Grampians over the past week and had some good birding, seeing just over a hundred birds. The highlight for me was two new birds, Painted Honeyeater and Chestnut-rumped Heathwren. The Painted Honeyeaters (at least 4 birds) were feeding off the fruiting mistletoe together with Mistletoe Birds, Pardalotes and numerous honeyeaters.


Other birds of interest were Buff-banded Rail, Barking Owl, Blue-winged Parrot, White-bellied Cuckoo-shrike, Rufous Songlark, Hooded Robin, Diamond Firetail and lots of Gang-gang Cockatoos.


Honeyeaters seen included;  


Yellow-faced Honeyeater

Yellow-tufted Honeyeater

White-plumed Honeyeater

White-naped Honeyeater

Black-chinned Honeyeater

Brown-headed Honeyeater

Crescent Honeyeater

New Holland Honeyeater

Painted Honeyeater

Eastern Spinebill

Blue-faced Honeyeater


Mammals of interest seen were the Echidna which walked right up to me, plus the Yellow-footed Antechinus, Sugar Glider, Red-necked Wallaby, Swamp Wallaby and Red Deer.
