More Birds of the Cranbourne Botanic Gardens
2007 Victorian trip report #5
During our visit to the gardens we walked along one of the many tracks in the park heading towards the highest point in this part of SE Melbourne, aptly named Trig Point. We didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t quite make it to the lookout tower because the time was quickly disappearing and the gates close at 5pm. The weather was also threatening to bring rain. On our return walk we saw Silvereyes, and Eastern Rosella, Spotted Turtledoves, about six Common Bronzewing pigeons, several Welcome Swallows and a flock of Straw-necked Ibis overhead.
At one point we stopped to watch a pair of Spotted Pardalotes gathering bark to line their nest. This was a new species for the trip list.
