Birdpedia – Australia – Weekly Digest

The following is a digest of Sightings Reported on Birdpedia for the period Monday, November 9, 2020 to Sunday, November 15, 2020:

Area: SA

Location: On our Rockleigh property

Grey Shrike-thrush (Colluricincla harmonica) (1) Grey shrike-thrushes are often skulkers in the foliage, and hard to see. Our bird sat in a sparse sheoak right behind our shed, and called, in full view. Half a dozen babblers turned up but it made an aggressive move towards one and they moved to the next bush. It then moved to the other side of the shed and sat high in a dead bush, and sang to us again while we were enjoying a glass of wine. This morning we woke about 6am to the sound of the shrike-thrush singing loudly right outside our window.

In the same tree as the shrike-thrush and babblers a very small singing honeyeater arrived, with a fuzzy black stripe on its face, unlike the clear black stripe adults have through the eye. It perched just a metre from my head and I didn’t dare move to get my camera out.
