Subject: NSW - Tianjara Plateau (Morton NP) - 24 March 2007 [SEC=PERSONAL]

Three of us spent last Saturday hiking along Twelve Mile Road on the
Tianjara Plateau in Morton National Park between Braidwood and Nowra.
Highlights were several Tawny-crowned Honeyeaters, >100 White-throated
Needletails flying before a storm front, Variegated Fairy-wrens and a
Peregrine Falcon.

Despite the windy conditions birds werent that hard to come by. Honeyeaters
(Yellow-faced, White-naped), Red Wattlebirds, Noisy Friarbirds and
Silvereyes (both races, >200 in flocks of 6-20) were all migrating in large
numbers and feasting on the flowering trees and shrubs. Many eucalypt and
acacia species were flowering as well as Heath Banksia. New Holland
Honeyeaters and Eastern Spinebills were everywhere. Also present were
Little Wattlebird and Brown-headed Honeyeater.
