Published sightings for the week ending 4 Mar 2012.

Sun 4 Mar Oriental Cuckoo Rush Creek Rd, Dayboro
At least 2 Oriental Cuckoos were still present at the water-board gate (chain?) on Rush Creek Rd near Dayboro (SEQ) this morning, unfortunately light was poor so couldn't see the second well enough to determine if it was an 'hepatic' bird. (Coords -27.216291, 152.872612)
