Today, Saturday 24th April 2007, I saw three Little Wattlebirds at my property in Gembrook, Victoria. This is the first time I have seen this species here in 18 years, the area is tall, wet sclerophyll eucalypt forest (but very dry at present). We get Red Wattlebirds here in the warmer months but never the Little. They came to the water and seemed to be feeding in a flowering Banksia spinulosa (in my garden), but didn't stay around for long.

As far as I'm aware this species in not commonly found in such habitat.

Any comments welcome.
