Bourke Street

Thanks to one of our weekend workshop participants, Michael, for locating a series of pools in the Rise and Shine. Yesterday afternoon it was like ‘Bourke Street’, with a procession of birds visiting to bathe and quench their thirst before nightfall. The main participants were honeyeaters, dominated by Fuscous and White-naped, smaller numbers of Yellow-tufted and a fleeting appearance by a couple of Black-chinned Honeyeaters – one of my favourite box-ironbark species.

    Your “Bourke Street” looks 50 million times better than the Bourke Street I frequent on occasions.
