Seeing Gavin's reply caused me to read the original posting. I recall seeing
seven Horsefield's Bronze-Cuckoos feeding on the ground one August a few
years ago on the Morney Plain, Birdsville Track, about 135km west of
Windorah, SWQld. It was near an ephemeral watercourse. I recall that there
seemed to be more than feeding taking place. I thought at the time that
there could be some kind of pre-breeding gathering taking place, but I never
followed up on it. It might have been nothing of the kind. I am fuzzy on
detail so long after the event.
