Mount Vincent

One the way back from the Regent Honeyeater Survey we stopped briefly at Mount Vincent where there seemed to be lots of honeyeaters, so I went back today for a longer walk.

There certainly were a good number of birds high in the flowering stringybarks. Bell miners were bathing in the dam, and a wedge-tailed eagle soared high overhead. A kookaburra was being mobbed by the honeyeaters and miners. The Brown Falcon was having trouble staying on his wire and soon flew off to a distant pole. These birds are also known as the Cackling Falcon, after their distinctive call.
