Backyard backing on to Alice Springs golf course
The bird moved around the backyard for the couple of hours that I was visiting friends whose garden it was in. At times It was being dive bombed by smaller birds. My friends saw the bird on and off in their garden for 3 days. eBird checklist

Wed 4highlightLong-tailed Cuckoo
Mount Bates Track, Norfolk Island National Park
Local bird tour guide Margaret Christian reported a Long-tailed Cuckoo on a walk with some NZ birders this morning. Seen on the Mount Bates track, near the land slip area covered in bracken. This is the third report on Norfolk for the past fortnight, so it seems a few birds are moving through this year. Reported by Craig Doolan on Margaret's behalf.
