Hello all,

I was excited to discover a Striped Honeyeater at my birdbath today.  While 
watching the Bowerbirds and Little (Brush) Wattlebirds bathing,  I noticed a 
smaller bird on the rail near the bath.  On closer inpsection with binos I 
could clearly see it was not a species I had seen here before.  I took a few 
photos but they aren't that great as it had just had a bath.  The main features 
were dark streaks on head, short beak with a very slight curve, dark stripes 
down the side of face and white underneath.  The back, flight feathers and tail 
were mainly brown.  It was also a lot smaller than the Little Wattlebirds 
nearby.  I could not see any records south of Sydney on the coast to Kangaroo 
Valley and wondered if anyone else has more information on this.

We were also fortunate to see a Bar-shouldered dove here recently, only ever 
seeing two in 14 years.
