Trevor and All,

Spotted harriers are great birds. Both in appearance and in behaviour. There
is alocal pair here on the Atherton Tablelands which regularly produce
strane looking young; leading to many confused birders, self included.

Went looking for the reported Papuan Harrier today without finding a single
harrier of any kind. Oriental Cuckoos are back at Hasties Swamp and also
east of Malanda.

Parked the car in a flock of White-rumped Swiftlets and opened the window.
They were so close that I was concerned that one would join me in the car.

Regards, Alan
