NotesThe ID of these little flocks passing overhead eluded me for about two months. The calls were not familiar, as they passed over every morning, returning later in the day. By chance one morning, I managed to get a clear sight photo opportunity. I believe the calls heard are reserved for post breeding season when forming small flocks of 5 to 20 birds. I do not know where they were coming from or going to each day, but they are fairly regular visitors to the garden throughout the year, but as singles or a pair.
