I have just completed a 7 weeks trip which included 11 days on Kangaroo Island 
as well as some time in the Victoria/SA mallee, returning via the Coorong and 
central Victoria.
  Highlights included:
        a) Red-lored Whistler - north of Rocket Lake campsite (34 37 18, 141 29 
        b) Barbary Dove - Elizabeth Vale (as per previous postings) - probably 
my easiest tick for quite a while.
        c) Rufous Bristlebird - that darted across the Loop Road (Coorong)
        d) Superb Parrot - numerous sightings in the southern Riverina from 
Mathoura to Jerilderie
        e) 16 of the 17 targeted sub-species from Kangaroo Island (I intend 
doing a detailed trip report for the Island, including an anotated list. 
Contact me direct if you would like a copy). My total for the Island was 101 
species - the only endemic sub-species that I missed was the Shy Heathwren. Of 
particular note were:
            - Orange Chat - pair at Kingscote (with a pair of Crimson Chats)
            - Mallee Whipbird - that walked around me in an unconcerned manner 
on the Hanson Track.
            - Glossy Black-Cockatoo - 5 behind American River
            - Banded Stilt - 5 near Emu Bay (with Black-winged Stilts)
