Penny asked whether there were any migrating Yellow-faced Honeyeaters in the Blue Mountains or other areas yet. None here in Katoomba so far and I would have noticed them if they were going over.

What I have had is a tree full of Noisy Friarbirds feeding in flowering Eucalyptus oreades, and at least 3 Satin Flycatchers in my street since last week. One is calling now as I type this. Strangely that was the first time they turned up here this season (they usually arrive in October).

Hello Penny,

Funny you should say this! I noticed the same thing yesterday here at Toronto. Also heading north. Whats going on?

Dear all

For the last 2 days I've noticed small flocks of twittering Yellow-faced Honeyeaters flying north, as they normally do much later in the year when migrating north up the Manning River valley.

Anyone else noticed this up the coast of NSW or in the Blue Mountains?
