Swift Parrot
La Trobe University Bundoora Campus
Heard the chattering and clinking calls, then saw and heard around 5-10 Swifties in trees next to carpark 8. Good views, but they often flew between trees and wouldn't settle for long. Reported to Dean Ingwersen. eBird checklist

Little Buttonquail
Yetmans Flora and Fauna Reserve
Whilst following a family of White-winged Chough's I suddenly noticed some movement ahead of me in the scrub. Two Little Buttonquail exploded out of the leaf litter and took off running into the grass and mallee scrub losing me very quickly with their camouflage. Only one of the birds flew and it only took off for a metre or so before returning to the ground and running. It is the middle of winter so I thought a BirdLine report may be of interest - however I wonder how many winter birds hang around in the Mallee as I saw a variety a good numbers of cuckoos whilst in the area also. eBird checklist Further information
