Other common birds you are likely to see in the forests include the Silvereye Zosterops lateralis which frequents a range of habitats from town gardens to open forest. They often move about in flocks searching for food.

A bird that is hard to identify, but is common wherever there are flowering eucalypts is the Musk Lorikeet Glossopsitta concinna. Often to be seen hanging from foliage as it searches for nectar amongst the trees.
