Is there an unusual southern movement of Channel-billed Cuckoos this year,
or is it just my ignorance of the beast? I ventured to the Blue Mountains
with a group last weekend, and saw one CBC over the highway at Campbelltown,
then 3 (bellowing, chasing, being harassed by Noisy Miners) in the Blue Mtns
NP at Glenbrook. Perhaps this is normal; what is NOT normal is the
appearance of one over suburban Canberra (Latham) a few days ago.

On another note; I run the Canberra Ornithologists Group's Birdwatchers
Hotline. Would there be any interest in a weekly(-ish!) posting of
highlights for the region? (And for Canberrans, this is not directed to you
- you're supposed to ring it!!!)
