Yellow Thornbill surprise at the farm

On a recent visit to the folks’ property in Moorooduc on the Mornington Peninsula, I was walking the Eucalyptus Woodlot boundary trying to track down an unusual bird call. It turned out to be a small flock of Yellow Thornbills. I have not seen this species on the Peninsula or at the farm before. A great new addition to the local bird list and a first time photo for me…
