Capertee Valley

Deal All.
Can anyone tell me if the box ironbark trees in Capertee Valley are flowering? I understand this attracts the regent honeyeater which I would dearly love to see. Any tips on seeing this endangered bird will be much appreciated. I have a few locations from Dolby and Clarke's guide. I plan to visit around 13 Oct. I am visiting from Singapore and will be birding the east coast for 2 weeks. Thanks.

Welcome to BirdForum. Probably the easiest thing to do is to check EBird for recent sightings of Regent Honeyeater. You can find those here by searching on Regent Honeyeater:
There appear to have been a few sightings in recent weeks.

Hi, there is a guide to the region here:
And I have found them at this time of year (october) at site 4, however, its not always. I usually park my car and wander the cross road area for about 30minutes. I have also seen them at sites 5 and 6, the end of the road at 6 seems to have some sort of development happening and I am not sure how good that will be.
