The first cool days of autumn typically herald the arrival of some new birds into the box-ironbark. Yesterday afternoon I spotted my first Eastern Spinebills, two juvenile birds in Rotunda Park, whilst I also got a distant view of a Pied Currawong. Both species are altitudinal migrants that can be found year-round not far from Newstead along the Great Dividing Range. Watch out for these and other autumn migrants over the next month – White-eared Honeyeater, Golden Whistler, Flame Robin and of course, Swift Parrots.
