Our Birdlife Melbourne BBQ was a great success, as you have probably already heard. Committe member, Millie Scicluna organised the event (with her parents doing the cooking), and salads provided by various other members.

Adriana can now show us videos on our blog – so here is the Striated Pardalote:
You will probably never forget his call!
