Hi all,
Went to Cumberland State Forest in Sydney today and saw quite a few of the usual species expected to be seen in there at this time of the year including,
Bell Miner,Noisy Miner,Pied Currawong,Laughing Kookaburra,Grey Fantail,Golden Whistler,Yellow-faced Honeyeater,White-cheeked Honeyeater,Brown Gerygone,White-browed Scrubwren,Black Faced Cuckoo-shrike,Crimson rosella,Rainbow and Musk Lorikeet.
But I saw two species of interest today as well.
The first was a Powerful Owl and was seen just after the beginning of the Forestry track roosting in a small tree directly above the creek a little up from where the track crosses the creek. It was about 2:10 pm.
The second sighting was a dark morph White-bellied Cuckoo-shrike which was seen in a Melaleuca which hangs directly above the road at the end of the Forestry trail.
The black scale marking that ran down this birds chest was so beautiful.
