Hi David, The "inland" Cattle Egrets were certainly interesting. However,
      your note below does not indicate them showing up along coastal SA,
      they certainly do on a regular basis, and I've had them in metro
      Adelaide a
      few times too.  T.

My omission of SA was a bit of an oversight but really relates to the
relative importance of Victoria in this regard.  Note that I did mention
Streaky Bay therefore implying they ranged across coastal SA.

South Australia is in an unfortunate location really.  This is further
reflected in the contraction of the range of Regent Honeyeaters northward.
There is unfortunately no longer much discussion of South Australia in
respect to Regent Honeyeaters.  How many other species just get into
south-eastern SA, or used to in the case of the Regent Honeyeater?
