forward to our unsuspecting human Summer Visitors being woken by the raucous
sounds of courting Channel-bills flying over and around the house for the next

arrived at Hazelbrook in the Blue Mountains. This morning (Sunday) I heard the
first channel-billed cuckoo of the season. This is a little earlier than usual
- last year it arrived on the 19th Sept.
afternoon while gardening, I watched a group of small birds, mostly brown &
striated thornbills mobbing a shining bronze-cuckoo.
