Sun 24highlightRegent Honeyeater
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].

Sat 23Regent Honeyeater
Lake Cathie, mid North coast
Second morning observing 2 unbanded birds in a flowering gum and other nearby trees and bushland. Quite a thrilling and convenient sighting 20m from home. Hours of observations unperturbed by dogs, Hawks and other Honeyeaters which were sent on their way when trying to share the tree which is owned by the Regents for now. Even Rainbow Lorikeets weren't allowed in. Photos, video and sound recordings of course.

Fri 8highlightRose-crowned Fruit-Dove
Marlo township
Have not seen this bird in Marlo before. The dove was chased by a grey bird of prey and smashed into the upstairs window. Probably broke its neck. The bird of prey flew off too quickly to identify.

Mount White, Central Coast

Mon 4Painted Snipe
Orient Station, Ingham, Queensland
Male Painted Snipe on part-flooded track in mangroves beyond end of road through Orient Station, southeast of Ingham, NQld. Presumed same bird seen at side of flooded Orient Station paddock in April. Risk of expensive bogging on the unmapped flooded and tidal tracks. No place for keen but illequipped birdwatchers.
