Sat 2Glossy Black Cockatoo, Budgerigar
Lake Banar, 20km Sth of Condobolin on private land
3 Glossies found feeding in a large stand of Belah on Sth side of Lake Banar around 7;30 am. There were 8 birds in this same tree two days ago. Also good to see small flocks of Budgies nearby feeding on abundant seeding grasses and drinking from a small waterhole. Other birds of note were Diamond Firetails and Dusky Woodswallows with fledglings. The later were in with a large group of White browed and Masked Woodswallows.

Wed 28Masked Owl
Crosslands Youth and Convention Centre
Single bird heard calling just after midday on the 28th, north of Still Creek, and just after 9pm on both the 28th and 29th, east of Still Creek. I was at campsite near flying fox when the bird was calling. I was unable to see the bird as I was looking after Yr 7 kids on a camp. Disappointing, as AMO is till my bogey bird! Other nocturnal birds heard on both nights: White-throated Nightjar, Powerful Owl, Boobook Owl and Australian Owlet-Nightjar. No Tawny Frogmouths, surprisingly.

Sat 24Gang-Gang Cockatoo
Farmers Creek, Lithgow
Initially, four birds were observed flying towards a stand of Hawthorn bush at the site. Several more groups flew in over the next half an hour or so, which I tallied up to a total of 24 birds. This is a substantial number for these times, and at least half appeared to be juvenile to subadult, which suggests a good breeding season in the area. Though at the time, I focused mainly on getting good portraits of individual birds, I did manage a frame where nine birds are visible which I will attach. eBird checklist
