WHITE-WINGED TRILLERS   a second 'wave' moving through

REGENT HONEYEATERS       2 possible/probable breeding-intending pairs in
northern ACT woodlands

BROWN SONGLARK  3/12 on inner suburban Mt Painter - the first ACT record
that I know of since 1995 [though they used to be regular]

SUPERB PARROTS   4/12 6 males, on the same Mt Painter - generally regarded
as pretty bare! 


STRAW-NECKED IBIS apparently breeding with Whites on Rowe's Lagoon (near
