Before I say to everyone that I am absolutely 100% sure of a Green Catbird at
Goolengook in East Gippsland, I will seek suggestions to other birds it could
But first I will describe the situation.
I have only come across catbirds at Lamington National Park in Queensland.
They have a very distinctive call, and this call was one of the first calls
that I heard, when I arrived. I investigated further because I thought this
bird was only from the warmer Queensland climate.
The bird sighted fits the description of the Green Catbird. Page 340 of Flegg
and Madge (Birds of Australia).
Participants in the forestry blockade when questioned about it, appeared to
be rather used of the bird being around and off- handedly responded that it
was a catbird. On previous visits to the area, I had not recorded the specie.
Either one bird was following me around or they are quite common in the area.
I believe the former.
I look forward to seeing if anybody has any suggestions.
