I've just spent the weekend climbing in Canberra, and managed to sneak
in some bird observations while belaying.
We looked around Canberra a bit, but most sightings came from Namadgi
NP, in the Booroomba/Honeysuckle area. I think it's been a year since
I was last at Booroomba, and the forest has thickened appreciable,
bringing many birds back to the area. New birds for me for the area
included vocal Gang-Gangs, a shy Lyrebird, Fantail Cuckoos, a whistler
(I think it's Rufous, not sure on their call yet), YFHE and one of the
brown head/white nape complex (didn't have binoculars), satin bowers
and Flame Robbin. I've got the Flame Robbin call dialled now, and
realise that it was one I've heard in the Mountains before (GT out
along Linden Ridge, quite sure it was a Flame now).
Also around the campsite were Eastern grey roos and Red Neck
Wallabies. The Eastern Greys endeared themselves to me early Monday
morning when they opened the esky of some noisy campers and spread
their food all over the campsite. funny stuff.
