I don't know an answer to John's interesting question. I don't think it is any serious tendency, just something that appeals to whoever at the time, who feels like writing about whatever comes up. BsK are no less deserving of interest than anything else.
It does highlight something worthwhile though, providing further support to the knowledge base that these birds are autumn / winter breeders here, instead of spring / summer breeders as are most raptors. I believe that an article in Australian Field Ornithology (formerly ABW) from a short study of the species, done in Canberra several years ago, by Tanya May / Barnes should add to this.
