In the Orange district, no autumn migration occurred, we still have 
Yellow-faced Honeyeaters present in smaller then usual numbers, but no 
influx as has occurred in previous years.No large flocks moving through during 
I'm inclined to think it has something to do with a combination of a warmer 
autumn and now winter. There was a short flowering season of Mugga Ironbark 
and White Box on the west slopes, but was not particularly attractive to 
honeyeaters, except in a few locations. I've notice this before, the trees 
seem to be flowering, but no nectar flow. Possibly a sign of a drought?

Good Birding
