Grey Gerygone

Smaller than the Silvereye weighing about 6.5 grams this 11 cm long bird is grey-brown above and has a pale grey face, throat and breast and has an off white abdomen, tinged with yellow. The tail is white underneath and dark brown on top with white tips visible in flight, it also has a distinctive ruby-red eye. The female has similar plumage but is smaller in size. The young are paler with no hint of yellow and have brown eyes. The male's song often starts with a series of three squeaks and builds into a distinctive long plaintive wavering trill that rises and falls. They sing throughout the year but most vigorously, when nesting, during spring. More commonly heard than seen.

The Grey Gerygone is classified as Least Concern. Does not qualify for a more at risk category. Widespread and abundant taxa are included in this category.

Next stop was Lake Lyndon situated near the top of an alpine pass. On the shore line up to five Double-banded Plovers and Pied Stilt. More
