Hi all, after dipping on the Little Bittern yesterday, I, like most of Melbourne had excellent views of the female in the far reed beds.
Anyway, at about 7pm today I saw a probable Channel-billed Cuckoo over Ivanhoe.  I watched it (without binoculars) for about half a minute, flying away from me.  Its shape, size and flight pattern were all identical to the C-b Cuckoos I saw in Mackay a few months ago.  I was standing to the east of the corner of Livingstone St. and Oriel Rd. and it flew in a southerly direction towards the Yarra River (possibly towards Chelsworth Park or Hays Paddock).
I would be interested to know if anyone has seen any C-b Cuckoos around lately.
