A single male Regent Honeyeater was found on the campus of the Australian National University in Canberra this morning by Michael Lenz. After hearing the news I went out and was rewarded with excellent views of this illusive species in a stand of E. viminalis. The bird was quite vocal with a call that sounded like ‘quip quip’. While not associating with resident Red Wattlebirds, their presence was a good indicator of where the RH was feeding.

David I will send off a report.
