Hi all,

I went for a short walk on Monday down a fire trail between Brooklyn and
Cowan (NSW).  It was one of the best days I had in spotting birdlife as
I saw such a variety in a short period of time.

The list of birds I saw within 2 hours were:

Magpie, Currawong, Blackfaced Strike-thrush, Redbrowed Finch, Little
Wattlebird, Rainbow Lorikeet, Superb Fairywren, Red-whiskered Bulbul,
Striated Thornbill, Eastern Spinebill, Eastern Yellow Robin, Willy
Wagtail,  White cheeked Honeyeater, New Holland Honeyeater and a Pelican
soaring high overhead.  There were many more that I heard - but I am not
experienced enough to be able to identify their birdcalls - except for
the Eastern Whipbird which even a novice like me can recognize!!

The highlight were some Spotted Pardalotes at their nest.  A few days
earlier, I watched them constructing their nest in the bank of a creek
and took some pretty photos.


However there were 2 birds where I am not certain of their ID and was
hoping someone could help me confirm their identity.  I believe it was
an olive backed oriole and a pallid cuckoo but not certain.   Then there
was another bird I photographed and have no idea of what it is.    The
photos are on Flickr so any help would be much appreciated!!


Kind regards,

Kim Gillen
