The following is a digest of Sightings Reported on Birdpedia for the period 
Monday, November 9, 2020 to Sunday, November 15, 2020:

Area: SA

Date: Saturday, November 14, 2020

Location: On our Rockleigh property

Grey Shrike-thrush (Colluricincla harmonica) (1) Grey shrike-thrushes are often 
skulkers in the foliage, and hard to see. Our bird sat in a sparse sheoak right 
behind our shed, and called, in full view. Half a dozen babblers turned up but 
it made an aggressive move towards one and they moved to the next bush. It then 
moved to the other side of the shed and sat high in a dead bush, and sang to us 
again while we were enjoying a glass of wine. This morning we woke about 6am to 
the sound of the shrike-thrush singing loudly right outside our window.

In the same tree as the shrike-thrush and babblers a very small singing 
honeyeater arrived, with a fuzzy black stripe on its face, unlike the clear 
black stripe adults have through the eye. It perched just a metre from my head 
and I didn't dare move to get my camera out.
