Hello fellow birders,
Last weekend I had the pleasure of accompanying some excellent birders to
and from Portland for the April Pelagic.
I mentioned to an esteemed birder on the trip up that I had enjoyed
watching the Western Gerygone on a recent trip to WA and that I had ticked
it at Wyperfeld, He thought it very unlikely to see this species at
Wyperfeld  NP and that it would most likely be found north of the divide at
places like the Warby Ranges NP.  Normally I defer to the greater wisdom of
more experienced birders but it was niggling at the back of my mind and I
wondered how come I had ticked this species incorrectly. I checked the bird
list that I had obtained from the excellent visitors' centre on my trips to
Wyperfeld and it listed the Western Gerygone.  I also googled on the
Internet and Eremaea listed the Western Gerygone as a 1 percent chance of
seeing at Wyperfeld. I then found a trip report by Tim Dolby for the 9th
April 2002 where he mentioned seeing the Western Gerygone at Wyperfeld.
 What has been the experience of other birders at Wyperfeld  with  the
Western Gerygone?
Happy birding,
Patrick Scully
