User's notes

My first sighting of this species in my local area. All I saw at first was four little 'grey' birds with white on their back fly low and slow at the base of varnish wattles. And as I didn't recognise that, I carefully snuck up on them in a Hickory Wattle and took these pics. Couldn't believe it.
