As spring unfolds Galahs and Long-billed Corellas are busy feeding in patches of thistles on the Moolort Plains. The flowers set seed quickly as the weather warms and the birds are ready to feast. Both species are feeding nestlings in nearby woodland areas, happy to fly some distance in search of nutritious morsels.
Brown Songlarks, spring migrants to the open country, have arrived in good numbers this year. Their rousing display flights are an enjoyable sight.
