Scarcity of Wattlebirds

  Red Wattlebirds are normally common around Ivanhoe and I suppose in most 
  This morning I heard a few calls from a Little Wattlebird in our garden, which
reminded me that I hadn't seen or heard any, either Red or Little, here for at 
three weeks. (Locally the Little WB tends to be a winter-spring bird).

  Last week I did not see or hear any RWBs at Banyule Flats.  However at Wilson 
there were about two Red Wattlebirds near the Yarra.

  I suppose we have to blame the drought. But where have they gone?
