Tue 26Eastern Koel
St Albans Road, Kingsgrove
Yesterday I heard a Koel calling for about 10 minutes. I was not expecting to hear any in Sydney for at least another month.. A case of early bird catches the worm? Climate change affecting migration patterns? (Moderator's Note: Overwintering birds not unknown viz Turramurra 8/6/1985 & Winmallee 6/7/1985, and there are other records! AKM).

At least 3 Ground Parrots began calling from the swamp at 5:15pm and continued to call intermittently until just after dark. We also had brief but clear views of Lewins Rail. Powerful Owl and Owlet Nightjar heard calling from adjacent woodland. eBird checklist

Fri 22highlightHooded Plover
Worimi Conservation Lands (Stockton Beach)
A juvenile Hooded Plover was a pleasant surprise for the regular (monthly) surveyors along Stockton Beach in the Worimi Conservation Lands, north of Newcastle, last Friday. To my knowledge (and BirdLife's Beach Nesting Birds Project) this is the first Hoodie reported north of Sydney for a few years. There was a bird present near Noosa (Qld) in winter 2010. Several people have subsequently tried to relocate the bird, without success. Also counted along the beach were 79 Double-banded Plovers, 36 Red-capped Plovers, 49 Aust Pied Oystercatchers and 2 Black-fronted Dotterels.

Wed 27Yellow-tailed Black-Cockatoo, Song Thrush
There has been a flock of 5 or 6 Yellow-tailed Black-Cockatoos feeding in Travancore Park and in the nearby street trees for about a week. As well, there has been a singing (presumably male) Song Thrush in a street tree in Myrnong Crescent for a similar period. Both are quite rare birds in Travancore now.

Sat 23White-browed Treecreeper, Pink Cockatoo
Timberoo Flora and Fauna Reserve
We saw several White-browed Treecreepers at Timberoo near Lake Walpeup and a flock of 8 Pink Cockatoos feeding in Pinus radiata cones (or something very similar) about 15 km north of Hopetoun on the Hopetoun - Walpeup Road.

Thu 21Redthroat, Tawny-crowned Honeyeater, White-fronted Honeyeater
Wyperfeld National Park
In the Green Teatree just off the Nine Mile Square Track, there were several Redthroats and nearby a single Tawny-crowned Honeyeater and a single White-fronted Honeyeater. There were very few "Mallee"-type honeyeaters in the Park (e.g. Yellow-plumed) although there were lots of Spiny-cheeked and White-eared Honeyeaters and Red Wattlebirds.
