The OB oriole at the Chandler highway bridge (in Melbourne) is still there, calling away.  I guess it'll clear out sooner or later - does anyone know if they sometimes overwinter in Victoria?
Also the little egret has returned as a regular to the lower Yarra.  I've seen it at Dights Falls, Herring Island, Melbourne High and down near the Swan Street bridge.

Heard an Olive-backed Oriole on the 16th April. White-throated Gerygones
still around our place singing their hearts out. They overwintered here back
in 1992 so maybe they will again this year.
