Thu 19megamegaChannel-billed Cuckoo
Highfield Street, Moonah
Heard the unmistakable and very loud call of a Channel-billed Cuckoo flying south directly over my house this morning. It was gone by the time I'd run outside. Am very familiar with the species as an ex-Queenslander.

Wed 18Banded Lapwing
Spion Kop Rd, Smithton (3537E, 54707N)
Sixteen adults and one newly-hatched chick in dairy pasture. The area had been pugged recently, so was less well-grassed than usual for a Smithton dairy farm.

Thu 19White-winged Triller, Rufous Songlark
Royal Park, Parkville
Decent 1-2 down at the local patch this evening. Rufous Songlark located down the bottom of the Skink habitat, not long after about less than 50 metres away observed an Immature White-winged Triller gleaning insects off the leaves of a Eucalypt. Both good inner city records. eBird checklist

East Ringwood (Vista Court), Victoria
East Ringwood 12 midday. Koel calling and then landing in tree on our bush block. Able to observe in the tree for about 5 minutes until wattle birds scared it off to another tree. Was around our property for approximately half an hour. Calling almost continuously (desperately looking for a mate!)... Last heard one nearby about 5 years ago and reported it on this site. Probably the same one - still lost. At that time it was heard early evening and very early morning. I heard it in the distance about 2 years ago but have not heard it again until 2 nights ago at dusk. It is unusual to hear it in the middle of the day. It was humid, during rain. Linda
