I've had a pretty lazy year birding thus far (but an excellent year
for climbing), with only one new bird to date. That was Musk
Lorrikeet, terrible views flying over head but an obvious call, size
and profile. I had it down but wasn't very happy about it,
particularly since just about every new bird I've seen has been
stunning, unmistakeable views. Both problems were solved this
afternoon when a flock of 14 landed in the large Yellow Bloodwood down
the back of our house and proceeded to feed noisily for 15 minutes. So
I unticked the old siting, then counted them this afternoon, mostly to
have the twin rewards of a new life bird and house bird at the same
time. Good times indeed.
