Ellena Best aged 10 exclaimed "Hey Mum there's a King Parrot!" And sure enough. It is the first time a King Parrot has been recorded on our property. It flew down to the deck and sat on a pole and then sat on the water heater. Its distinctive call could be heard in the surrounding forest.
Poor photos (long way away) but Cuckoo-shrike is new for my property and Riddells Creek. Gill & I have been hearing a new call for a few days. Rosella has only been recorded once previously at my place too.
Pair spotted roosting on a dead Blackwood, among Eucalyptus aromaphloia. Second pic shows wing-marks on our window - the birds are feasting on Rain Moths (Hepialidae) on the windows at night at this time of year.
