Published sightings for the week ending 30 Dec 2012.

Fri 28 Dec Painted Honeyeater Mulligan's Flat Sanctuary
I had the good fortune to see 2 male Painted Honeyeaters at Mulligan's Flat Sanctuary today. One chased the other away and then proceeded to call for a while from deep within a mistletoe-infested Blakely's Red Gum. They were in the vicinity of the COG bird walk marker #5.

Sun 23 Dec Spotted Dove Jerrabombera Wetlands and Kellys Swamp
A single adult Spotted Dove in a dead tree just across the footbridge towards Fulica hide, mid afternoon. This is the first I have seen in this area, though I note that it has been reported twice there in recent months (Oct, A. Smith: Nov. S. Holliday) and once in 2001. At Kellys the water level was down and there were two dead carp floating on the surface. A Purple Swamphen was pecking and eating one of the bodies.
