In anticipation of migrants …

As the cooler autumn weather encroaches bird activity in the garden is waning a little – some of our usual residents are pictured below.

Over coming weeks I’ll be on the lookout for some of the altitudinal migrants to grace the garden – Eastern Spinebills, Golden Whistlers, Pied Currawongs and White-eared Honeyeaters can all be anticipated.

    Hi Geoff,
    I’ve already had a couple of visits from a Golden Whistler this month. Now that is one call that I do remember. A joy to have in the garden.
