 This is the entry from Annotated List of the Birds of the Top End (Thompson 
and Goodfellow).  Hence my concern.
Range and status: moderately common in open forest and wooded gullies across 
the region but rather local in the northern coastal areas and absent from 
Darwin.  Storr includes Melville lsland and Groote Eylandt, with breeding from 
October to February.  Atlas has record from Groote Eylandt but not Gove area.


Records: Occurs near Darwin on road to Middle Arm, at Manton Dam, at Litchfield 
Park.  Rather sparsely distributed in the VRD area, 1976-77.  Quite common in 
Kakadu around Koongarra, Nourlangie Rock and Nawulandja as well as in open 
forest along the Kakadu Highway.  Carrying material near Cooinda and near 
Nourlangie Rock, November 1985.  Recorded near Borroloola, October 1989.  
Recorded at Mt Todd, 1989-90.  Records from Jasper Gorge, Keep River NP and VRD 
area but seems to be rather scarce in the western sector.
