Hi all
I enjoyed a pleasant walk along the track that follows the creek from McRae 
Place in North Turramurra this morning.  Some good spring birds included in the 
45 species seen or heard, including a Black-faced Monarch, nesting Leaden 
Flycatchers, at least 6 singing male Golden Whistlers, 2 Dollarbirds and a pair 
(seen) and 3 or 4 others (heard only) of Sacred Kingfishers.  However, missing 
for me were Channel-billed Cuckoos.  I may have heard one call in the distance 
just as I walked into McRae Place (off the junction of Burns Rd & Bobbin Head 
Rd) at about 7am but that was it.  
In fact, they have been noticeably absent from my part of North Turramurra this 
spring.  There are Currawongs and Ravens about, so the requisite target species 
are in the neighbourhood.  Is anybody else seeing numbers down?
