We’ve been ‘overseas’ for the past week, enjoying sightings of birds such as Cape Barren Geese, Green Rosellas, Yellow Wattlebirds and Black-headed Honeyeaters. Consequently this post is a bird dated!
Before we headed off I took a short walk along the Loddon near Punt Road. The usual birds were about – Superb Fairy-wrens, White-browed Scrubwrens and White-plumed Honeyeaters. The surprise was a party of White-browed Babblers, foraging in a planted area established by the Newstead Landcare Group some years ago. This is the first time I can recall this species at this spot, perhaps a sign that they are wandering in search of hospitable habitat over summer.
