Interesting. Your start sentence is very much like the experience of
"my" bird at home nearly 4 years ago that stayed and was seen every day
for 9 weeks.

Hi all

This is clearly one very site-faithful bird for now. After taking all
week to get around to it, I finally managed to get out to Minnippi
Parklands in Tingalpa late this afternoon. Several birders was just
leaving as I arrived, saying the bird hadn't been seen for close to an
hour. I reasoned that meant it was due to put in another appearance.
Sure enough, after about a 20-minute wait a White-fronted Honeyeater
appeared in the exact location it has been seen all week, at 4.40pm in
the tall eucalypts adjacent to box number 269. It stayed in view for
around 15 minutes, by which time the light was starting to fade. Also
present were Golden and Rufous Whistler, a party of Variegated
Fairy-wrens, Scarlet, Yellow-faced and Brown Honeyaters, and a single
Fan-tailed Cuckoo. Black and Scarlet Jezebels (butterflies) were a nice
