There has been some comment about glaring errors in lists submitted. Having
just done one, I can understand that these were most probably unintentional.
For example, we almost submitted the Forty-spotted Pardalote because that got
tapped when entering the Spotted Pardalote. Trying to keep up with the caller,
there were a couple of other mistakes that I had to correct.
I checked the postcode 2463 (lower Clarence area, NSW) and found the
Black-backed Butcherbird and Blue-breasted Fairy Wren. I would suggest these
were entry errors rather than misidentification or lack of experience (and
certainly not mischievous!).
Just as a matter of interest, a pair of Pacific Baza were observed in our
twenty minutes. A few years ago, we had a pair nesting on our block, which
brought three eggs to formed chicks before the nest was blown down in a severe
storm. This was reported in Australian Field Ornithology, Vol 23, number 3,
Sep 2010. The behaviour this morning was suspicious. Having only arrived back
yesterday after some months away, we can't suggest anything more on this at the
