Probably two hundred flitting around on this block this morning. Hard to count with their busy behavior. Eating from the plentiful seed capsules in the Eucalyptus sideroxylon (Red Ironbark, or, Mugga) trees.

13 in trees eating insects. I saw one in a tree, it had just caught an insect and was sitting in the branches. I was able to walk within 12 inches of the bird and it did not fly away. Amazing!
