Cocos is still turning up vagrants with a couple more species added
since my last update.
We've had a few sightings of LARGE HAWK CUCKOO over the last two days and Asian
Koel has been seen daily around town.
The MEGAMAKI FLYCATCHER, as we've now named it, was still on Home Island
yesterday and the GADWALL was photographed
on West Island again this morning.
EYE-BROWED THRUSH seem to be everywhere we go, with another two located on
Direction Island yesterday. A ROSY STARLING was photographed
by our group this afternoon and WATERCOCK are still on Home Island. CHINESE
SPARROWHAWK has also been sighted again since my last update.
This afternoon, a West Island local reported to us a small passerine on the
island, so we're off in search of it.... gotta rush.
