Glossy Black Cockatoo
Wattle Tree Road, Holgate, northern end
Saw two flying fairly low at 5.15 pm, in a north westerly direction, crossing Wattle Tree Road just south of Patterson Close, periodically giving their distinctive, rattling / croaky call. Have seen them approximately 6 times in this area over the past few months, usually a pair, on one occasion 3, and on another occasion 5. On some of these occasions, I was able to see the red on the underside of their tail feathers, Very exciting to see them in this area. (Moderator's Note: Glossy Black Cockatoos are a moderately bird across the Central Coast.AKM)

highlightWhite-fronted & Brown Honeyeaters
Manna State Forest, SW of Forbes. 33 25 08 S 147 19 14 E
Ironbarks just starting to flower. There were more White-fronted Honeyeaters, making lots of noise, than any of the other 6 honeyeater species seen. Just a few Brown Honeyeaters and a nice number of other woodland species. Location is the far SW corner of the forest just to the north of the Manna Corinella Road junction. Note it is best accessed from the Corinella Road as Manna Forest Road is closed further north, due to damage of it's red soil surface from rain.

Tue 25Orange Chat
Wetlands about 10km along road ne from Karumba towards Normanton
Party of 6 (3m, 3f). Feeding on flood plains and roosting in nearby small shrub between. Occasional call. I was alert to the possibility with recent report from Burketown about 200km sw 3 weeks prior. Another Burketown record in 1994. Guidebooks suggest this is a range extension or does it rather reflect chronic under-survey of this remote area?

Terrick Terrick National Park--The Meadows
Single bird seen associating with Black-shouldered Kites, perching on fences and lignum bushes and moved around through much of the reserve. Seen well in flight showing the extensive, solid black underwing bars. Also noted pronounced black in front of eyes with no black behind, paler legs/feet than Black-shouldered and dark grey on top of head and on mantle. Appeared slightly larger in comparison to Black-shouldered. Unforgettable experience. GPS coordinates of first sighting are: -36.112365, 144.434583 eBird checklist
