Heading south from Griffith the most obvious birds were the Black-shouldered Kites and Nankeen Ketrels perched on the power lines.
The first birds to be seen as I entered the State Forest from Darlington Point was a family group of White-browed Babblers. A little further on an even noisier family of White-wing Choughs made an appearance. It was soon apparent that there was not much flowering in the forest, so there were no obvious trees to stake out for honeyeaters. A quick drive along a sandy track to the river bank drew a blank, so I headed back to the birdiest spot I had seen, which was near the entrance. I didn't have to wait too long before a large number of Yellow Rosellas turned up. What I hadn't noticed on the way in was a small water hole just off the track that was attracting the birds. I didn't bother with a hide which probably explains why didn't get any worthwhile Rosella images. I did try bringing the birds in with playback. The Rosellas definitely responded, but not enough to come down low for a decent shot. One species that did show a lot of interest was a group of Blue-faced Honeyeaters. These are a fantastic species to photograph with their boisterous behaviour and distinctive facial skin.
Other birds seen were: Eastern Rosella, Australian White Ibis, White-necked Heron, Great Egret, Galah and Noisy Miner.
