Grey Goshawk, Regent Bowerbird and more

Post by Mick Atzeni » Sat Dec 07, 2013 11:40 pm

Unsuccessful look for Topknot Pigeon this morning (8-9am) in the fig trees below Prince Henry Drive.

Highlights were a male Regent Bowerbird in flight – even more spectacular viewed from above!; a Grey Goshawk being given short shift by a drongo; a pair of Brown Goshawks; and a handful of Black Kites.

Scarlet Honeyeaters are at "Tiddalac" again. Had not seen or heard any for a while.
