Mid this week, I saw a wedge tailed eagle drop from the sky toward my 
neighbour's paddock. I took my binocs out for a look. There were four wedgies 
sitting in the paddock (somewhat like vulctures). Two fledglings and two 
adults. I believe there are nests used each year in another neighbours 
property. I couldn't see what attracted their attention, but I did not see them 
feed and they soon flew off on heavy wings. Isn't it fantastic that we can 
still see such things within 50k of Melbourne CBD.

Soon after a pair of rufous whistlers perched in a camelia just 1m from my 
windown. The song was glorious. The male then spent a few minutes harrying his 
reflection in the window (0.5m from where I sat), before moving off. The pair 
have been with us all summer, but I have not seen any signs of them nesting.
