Sat 18Cattle Egret
Moss Vale
60 birds with five cows in a paddock on the corner of Headlam St and Argyle Rd. The most Cattle Egrets I've seen together, ever! [Moderator's Note: Unusual for the Southern Highlands, though not unexpected on passage at this time of year]

Fri 17Ground Cuckoo-shrike
Eulah Creek
Alerted by the racket they were making in the air, at first I thought there were 8 Ground Cuckoo-shrikes, but later it turned out that a family of 5 (2 adults, 3 juveniles; begging calls were heard) was upsetting a local family of 3 Black-faced Cuckoo-shrikes. When they separated, the Ground Cuckoo-shrikes went to ground, while the BFCS hunted from fences. At times the Ground Cuckoo-shrikes had a sentry on a fence too (photo). Sound recordings were also taken (yet to be processed). Further information

Thu 16Stubble Quail
Eulah Creek
First heard on 5 April 2015, it took me a while to identify a series of calls that I had recorded. It turned out to be a male Stubble Quail issuing contact calls just after sunset. The same calls were heard again on the morning of 16 April (no visual ID; but confirmed call ID). The calls confounded me; so I am quite confident that I had not heard them before (here, 20 km East of Narrabri, or elsewhere). Recordings available in the link. Further information
