Published sightings for the week ending 25 Sep 2011.

Wed 21 Sep Shining Bronze-Cuckoo (2), Horsfield's Bronze-Cuckoo (7), Painted Button-Quail (2) Sandy Creek Conservation Park
Followed an unusual call and came across a quite confiding Shining Bronze-Cuckoo! It was calling constantly and I could hear another in the park as well! Also, Horsfield's Bronze-Cuckoo's were everywhere in the park and for the second time in three weeks I got brief but good views of a pair of Painted Button-Quails (last time was at Altona just up the road!) before they flushed. Both the Horsfields Bronze-Cuckoos and the Painted Button-Quails seem to enjoying a good season here in the southern end of the Barossa Valley at the moment!

Sat 17 Sep common myna Adelaide Airport
My first record of Flying Cane Toads in my biannual visits to Adelaide. Confirmation by other birders would be appreciated. I hope the authorities are dealing with them.
