Offhand I can think of only one Thornbill drinking observation I actually registered in my mind (that is I remember it well but did not write it down - bad!) - because it was so bizarre. (And it may have been bathing but not actually drinking.)

It occurred on Deakin University campus at Geelong, and the thornbills that were on the ground and at the water (the muddy edge of an ornamental lake) were Yellow Thornbills. I was amazed as it was - and still is - the only time I have ever seen this species on the ground.
