I just received the following message from Alan Galbraith. This may be the first record of Black Honeyeater in the Perth metropolitan area? Rufous Treecreeper is rare (one at Blackwall Reach about a week ago) and the Red-tailed Black-Cockatoos are all over Perth in the last couple of months.

Hi Frank

Something awry going on in the southern suburbs with red tailed cockies (still around - saw 3 today), a rufous treecreeper and now about half an hour ago a black honeyeater in Wireless Hill, about 200m in from the junction of Alexander road and McCallum Crescent entrance. Am just going back with my camera, hopefully to be able to find it again. It was perching in full view so got good sightings of it.
