Babblers and flycatchers

I came across another party of White-browed Babblers on Friday, along Gully Track, not far before it enters the Muckleford bush. A pair of Restless Flycatchers were keeping them company as the babblers foraged on the stony ground – the prominent crest of the flycatcher well and truly on display.

  1. Is the flycatcher the bird with the metal on metal sound?

  2. Hi Geoff. I spotted a some White Browed Babblers in my garden yesterday – it was the different call that caught my attention. I haven’t noticed them before. Also some Finches (Red Browed, I think), Grey Shrike Thrush, Superb Fairy Wrens, Bronzewing Pigeon and many others … a cacophony!

    • Hi Meg – that’s an excellent observation. White-browed Babblers are a lovely species and extremely sociable. If you put some water out (apologies if you have already) they will most likely hang around at this time of year.
      Cheers, geoff
