The following is a digest of Sightings Reported on Birdpedia for the period 
Monday, April 13, 2020 to Sunday, April 19, 2020:

Area: SA

Date: Tuesday, April 14, 2020

Location: On our Rockleigh property

Grey Shrike-thrush (Colluricincla harmonica) (2) This morning, when it was 
still cool, a pair of grey shrike-thrushes were on the dusty ground a metre 
apart doing what certainly looked like dancing, and taking it in turns to 
warble, Is this unusual behaviour ? It is bone dry there and you would not 
expect them to be thinking of romance at this time of year.

Also seen the previous evening when the light was fading and the birds were 
getting frisky, a diamond firetail, and a (silent) female golden whistler. The 
last time I saw a golden whistler was in April 2016, also a female.
