Blue-faced Honeyeaters occur in several very localised spots in the Capertee
Valley.  They are not an uncommon inland bird.  Easy to see in Dubbo, for

Beautiful Firetails occur regularly, but not commonly, in the Capertee
Valley.  Most of the records I am aware of appear to be in the cooler

Black Falcons are, again, regular but not common in the valley.  I saw a
pair there last April on a tree-planting weekend.

My only query about your list is the Brush Bronzewing.  I am not personally
aware of any record of this species in the Capertee Valley.  Common
Bronzewing are very common (is this obvious?).  I would be very interested
in details of your Brush Bronzewing sighting.
