Visits to the ‘Rise and Shine’ have been few and far between in recent months. I was fortunate therefore to be able to call in a number of times over the weekend. Firstly with two of our bird photography workshop groups on the Saturday, and then to lead a walk on Sunday with the ‘Friends of the Box Ironbark Forests’. There was a nice variety of birds (and reasonable numbers) on both occasions. I’ve appended a list at the bottom of this note.
Birds observed at the Rise and Shine (14th and 15th March 2015) – Yellow-tufted Honeyeater, White-naped Honeyeater, Black-chinned Honeyeater, White-plumed Honeyeater, Brown-headed Honeyeater, Scarlet Robin, Australian Owlet-nightjar, Crimson Rosella, Eastern Rosella, White-throated Treecreeper, Striated Pardalote, Spotted Pardalote, White-bellied Cuckoo-shrike, Black-faced Cuckoo-shrike, Dusky Woodswallow, Hooded Robin, Weebill, Striated Thornbill, Australian Raven, Red-rumped Parrot, Australian Magpie, Restless Flycatcher, Willie Wagtail, Red Wattlebird, White-browed Babbler, Fuscous Honeyeater, Magpie-lark, Brown Treecreeper, Common Bronzewing, Grey Shrike-thrush, Buff-rumped Thornbill … and I’m sure to have forgotten some!
