I’ve been visiting the same spot along Mia Mia Road over the past week. All four visits have yielded Red-capped Robin, Scarlet Robin, Crested Bellbird and Speckled Warbler, while I’ve seen Chestnut-rumped Hylacola twice and this morning heard a Spotted Quail-thrush. It’s a real hot-spot!
On each visit a small group of Speckled Warblers have been hanging around the same general area, a pair of adults with what I think is an immature bird, which earlier in the week was spotted following one of the adults carrying food. This morning I observed the female carrying what appeared to be a downy feather … could it be that they have raised a youngster and are now constructing another nest?
Also observed this morning: White-eared Honeyeater, Yellow-faced Honeyeater, White-throated Treecreeper, Crested Shrike-tit, Golden Whistler, Spotted Pardalote, Striated Pardalote, Little Lorikeet, Fuscous Honeyeater, Brown-headed Honeyeater, Brown Thornbill and Grey Fantail.
