I've been collecting info on the arrival times of Dollarbird, Koel and
Channel-billed Cuckoo at various places on the east coast. We have several
observers in three Central Qld towns - Mackay, Rockhampton & Bundaberg, as
well as here on the Sunshine Coast. The arrival times are coming in nicely
with the exception of one odd one: Our Mackay people are reporting that
they haven't yet laid eyes on a Dollarbird this spring. And yet this
species has arrived in areas to the north and to the south. I was in Mackay
myself just over a week ago, and didn't see a Dollarbird.

If anyone out there lives in the Mackay region, or has been through Mackay
recently and has seen (or NOT seen) a Dollarbird, would you be good enough
to let me know, please? With date and location. If anyone living there
could give me the first arrival date, that would be great.

Many thanks in advance,

Jill Dening
