highlightWhite-throated Needletail, Brush Cuckoo
Caniaba, Lismore NSW
About 15 WTNT flying east in a group at 9:00am. Single WTNTs have been sighted over the past week. This plus the direction of the group indicate they are resident in the general area and were on a feeding patrol, probably to one of the coastal NPs, returning later to somewhere west, possibly in the Casino area. This speculation is based on last year's observations when a group was seen daily flying east. Also seen Brush Cuckoo courtship feeding: adult male Brush Cuckoo feeding a barred adult female. The male was chasing flying insects, probably tiger moths. [Moderator's note (NH): Thanks to Rohan Clarke for commenting on Brush Cuckoo courtship feeding and barred adult female Brush Cuckoos.]
