If you continue north along Mia Mia Track you’ll note the large firewood coupe on the east side on the approach to Bell’s Lane Track. It can be a good area for birds – Chestnut-rumped Hylacolas use the fallen timber as foraging habitat and there are some remaining large, old trees that Galahs enjoy. The Hylacolas still prefer the intact, shrubby areas nearby but make short forays into the firewood area to feed. The recent storm has sent rafts of debris along the drainage line – one small waterhole remains in the gully but it will be dry in a few days. As I watched on Yellow-tufted and Fuscous Honeyeaters came in to drink, along with a family of Crested Shrike-tits. Alas they were too elusive for a photograph!
