Hi David

No wonder you were taken back by observing 5 Common Mynas at Tambar Springs.
To date, this is the furthest west they have been recorded in the Liverpool
Plains.  Most of the records for Common Mynas, as you would expect, occur
around the more easterly areas of the Plains including Quirindi, Quipolly
Dam, Melville Ranges, Wallabadah, Ardglen, Currabubula etc. No doubt the
march continues!

Your observations of Black-faced Woodswallows might be a bit more
significant than you first thought.  There are only two records for this
species in the Liverpool Plains.  Not an uncommon bird by any stretch, may
be locally uncommon within the region.(?).
