Dollar Bird

Three  Dollar  Birds  spotted  and  watched  with  binos  for  5  minutes  about  1pm  14/5/14.  Each  was  a  juvenile  just  in  the  process  of  getting  their  adult  plumage.  I  thought  these  birds  weren't  even  meant  to  be  in  Australia  at  this  time  of  year.

Wow! that's amazing tim. They aren't meant to be in Aus still, whereabouts did you see them? Maybe put that up on birdline for your state,

Cheers Babybirdwatcher

That is unusual Tim. Maybe they are staying over winter like some other breeding migrants do sometimes.

Thanks  for  the  interest.  The  birds  were  spotted  at  Yarck  Vic  at  the  foot  of  the  Black  range  in  a  bushland  setting.
