   Published sightings for the week ending 18 Jan 2015.

   Fri 16 Jan Regent Bowerbird Mill Rainforest Trail
   Came upon an active Regent Bowerbird bower and witnessed the courtship
   ritual and copulation of a pair at the bower this morning. Light
   conditions in the rainforest and the fact that the bower was well
   hidden under overhanging foliage made for poor photographs.

   Thu 15 Jan White-throated Nightjar Brisbane Forest Park--Bellbird Grove
   One bird heard calling twice in quick succession, from the far side of
   the open field, at about 8pm. The first time I've heard this species
   here this summer (though presumably they've been kicking around for a
   little while beforehand). An Owlet-nightjar and a Boobook (both regular
   here) were also heard.

   Tue 13 Jan Black-breasted Button-quail Noosa National Park--Tanglewood
   Single bird (female) seen on near Alexandria Bay turn off on the
   Tanglewood track. Good views.

   Sun 11 Jan Powerful Owl Mt Nebo Rd
   Fantastic views of a single bird perched low in a roadside eucalypt
   about 2km from the Brisbane Forest Park Information Centre. Attached
   mobile phone photo is the best we could manage.
