Capertee Valley--Genowlan Bridge, New South Wales
4+ birds among 100's of smaller honeyeaters. [Moderator's Note: This is probably the largest congregation of wild birds recorded nation-wide since spring last year. Follow up observations noting exact numbers and presence/absence of rings would be excellent. JB].

Wed 27highlightNoisy Pitta
Irrawong Reserve
Noisy Pitta seen extremely well by Jayden this morning at 7am. Also seen by Colin Bradshaw (attached photo). Bird is residing in the same area as last year, just west of the small raised boardwalk. [Moderator's Note: A young pitta was released at Irrawong last week by a wildlife carer after rehabilitation - it is unclear whether the bird pictured here is this rehabilitated individual, or the site faithful regular. JB].

Fri 22megamegaWhite Plumed Honeyeater
Peter Murrell Reserve Sth of Hobart
Friday morning about 11.30 Peter Murrell reserve. We took it standing on the bank of the bigger dam looking into the White gums towards the school. There was 3 of them and when we got a shot of one thought nothing more of it as they are common here in Bendigo. It was only when we got home that we realised they don't usually occur in Tassie. [Moderator's note - would be good if locals could follow-up on this rare sighting]

Macleod Railway Station
Estimated around 20 birds chipping away to each other in trees above Macleod Railway Station carpark near Platform 1. Nice views of the red face and vent and maroon tails on a couple of them. All took flight together and then scattered around the area. Great to see they are still around. eBird checklist

Sun 3highlight(Possible) Salvin's Prion, Antarctic Prion and Slender-billed Prion
Off Portland, Victoria
1 possible Salvin's Prion, 2 Antarctic Prions and 1 Slender-billed Prion along with many Fairy Prions, 1 Buller's Albatross, 1 Southern Royal Albatross and 5 Wandering Albatrosses on a good day on the water. As usual, the Salvin's Prion has been hard to identify even with the excellent photos that we taken. But, it exhibits the features of the Salvin's Prion identified on the May 2013 boat trip from Portland - longer bill that is thicker at the base and an undertail pattern that has grey barring on the lateral undertail coverts and a central black terminal band that doesn't go across the whole width of the tail. The photos of Antarctic that we can compare it to, including the two on this trip, do not exhibit the same features as they have shorter, narrower bills and undertails that don't have the grey barring but do have a black terminal band across the whole width of the tail. The birders on the boat are confident of this identification after looking at the various photos. (However, several of the other commentators subsequently reviewing the photos are predisposed to this bird being Antarctic.)
