G'day all

Can anyone with more experience with Wimmera birds comment on the status
of Pied Butcherbirds.  The Wimmera is western Victoria (Horsham,
Warracknabeal, Little Desert etc.)

I atlassed a block north of Horsham today that hadn't been done before.
Mostly the block was treeless except for some roadsides and the
Yariambiack Creek.  I stopped at three places and was delighted to find
a Pied Butcherbird at one.  In Victoria, I've only seen these in the far
north-west and in the Rutherglen district.

Lovely birds - unfortunately this one didn't feel like a song.
