Marnix Zwankhuizen mentioned a Koel at Blackheath (I guess about a week ago)
in a trip report posted to canberrabirds.

On a different topic, my free local paper (The Glebe) has this: 

"The National Parks & Wildlife Foundation" wants Inner West residents to
help monitor the distribution of endangered species.  Concerns are held
for several local species including the grass owl, regent honeyeater
and superb fruit-dove because there have no recorded sightings in the
past year".

I guess Regent Honeyeater might have frequented Leichhardt a century or so
ago.  Maybe there are vagrant records for inner west Sydney the other two?
Presumably the paper has mangled a press release.
