Eurasian Tree Sparrrows used to be quite common in some Melbourne suburbs and we used to see plenty around Ivanhoe and Alphington. In recent years they have declined markedly, so I was pleased to see one on Wed. 30 November, on the outward platform at Alphington Station, while we were waiting for the 10.08 to the City. In case any tick-hunters really want to see them, there are still quite a few at Melbourne Zoo. They are not very hard to pick from House Sparrows - brown cap, and black spot on cheek.
