Hello All,
Having recently sold my home of about 50 years and having moved into a retirement village I had resigned myself to a future of vastly reduced opportunities for engaging with birds. Now I am not so sure. The new dawn chorus has established itself as  Eastern Yellow Robin , Little Wattlebird , Grey Butcherbird Pied Currawong , Aust. Magpie , Koel Cuckoo , Eastern Whipbird and Kookaburras. Last week whilst lying in bed , contemplating the attractive outlook to the NE across Garigal NP I became conscious of an anomaly in the Lillipilli tree about 10 feet from the large bedroom window. This object resolved itself into an immature male Superb Lyrebird perched about 3m up in the tree and not at all concerned with my proximity. Apart from one sally into a nearby Eucalypt , he remained in the Lillipilli all day but was gone the following morning . I have since noticed a new bird call which sounds just like a not- very- polished E. Whipbird call , so I might be lucky .
