Like Peter Fuller and his team, Echuca and District BOCA members also
observed a Painted Honeyeater at Terrick Terrick National Park, northern
Victoria, on Saturday 5th November. It was observed near Reigel's Rock.

Whilst having lunch in the picnic ground at the foot of Mitiamo Rock (Mt
Terrick Terrick), the group observed a Southern Boobook flying about. No,
they were not having a very, very late lunch!

Meanwhile, some other Echuca and District BOCA members attended
Warrnambird, four days of birding in the Warrnambool area. Warrnambird was
very well organised, the bushland areas visited were outstanding and thed
leaders were terrific. We enjoyed great views of Golden-headed Cisticola
and Striated Fieldwren (Calamanthus) on a private oceanside property, and
eye-level views from the top of Mt Eccles crater of a pair of Peregrine
Falcons coaxing a young bird to fly. It was great to see thousands of
Short-tailed Shearwaters coming back to their burrows after sunset. Ken
Simpson gave an interesting talk about pelagic birds. Congratulations to
sou'west Victoria birders for a terrific four days.
