User's notes

I've separated the count for males to females/young birds. The males were on one side of the path singing, eating, and showing off. The most predominate species of honeyeater at the site.

Yeah, they seem to be abundant generally down here this summer. We don't normally see them at Brogo but this year we've been hearing them daily. I can only recall one other year in the last 20 or so when that happened. Probably because so much of their habitat got burnt further north, and south last summer.

Thanks Jackie. I agree but they are not in their numbers yet of other years - but then I didn't find alot of gums out in flower.
