A merry band of banders

Rob Davis and his team of bird banders were in the bushland this morning. I wondered whether there would be anything for them to band after all the birds disappeared following the hail storm in March.

However, they caught a few silver-eyes (Zosterops lateralis), a rather sick Yellow Rumped Thornbill (Acanthiza chrysorrhoea), and a Western Warbler (Gerygone fusca). They also saw, but didn't catch a Mistletoe Bird (Dicaeyn hirundinaceum).

I went off looking for weeds emerging from the rain following the storm. Lots of Black Flag and Freesia are already up.
