Author's notes

A small bird darted across my path to land in the grass; it was a Yellow-rumped Thornbill. This one was by itslelf hopping through some grass looking for food. After a few minutes it flew back across the track to a tree on the opposite side of the trail from where it had been. In the tree it appeared to join with a group of Buff-rumped Thornbills and they all continued to move though the trees presumably looking for food.
