Talking of early migration, Noisy Friarbirds were on the Gloucester
River 30.7.15, and yesterday a Figbird in my garden had bright red eye
patches.  The Red Wattlebird is investigating last year's nest site (and
has bright red wattles) and the Eastern Spinebills spend a lot of time
chasing each other around the bushes. There are also newly fledged
White-headed Pigeons in the garden (not surprising since they seem to
breed all year round in Gloucester), and both Fantail and Shining-bronze
cuckoos are calling loudly.

Could this be global warming?

Weather is said to be sold again this coming week so that may cause all
this action to slow down a bit.
