Even sadder...  On returning from Adelaide I found a dead immature pallid
cuckoo on our deck. It had obviously tried to short-cut its migration route
through a window and judging by the state of the remains had done so in the
last 24 hours.

Looking at the GBS results shows that this species is mainly reported in
October and November when calling.  However there is a small secondary bump
in the line in weeks 11 - 13 when they head North.  If this interpretation
is correct then this poor bird was right on time.

Sadly... A mob (that OK, GB?) of Little Ravens being very busy and chatty in
the foliage of the ANU eucs along Barry Drive this morning.
