Hello John,
If so, your information is old news. Please put in a rarities form. The call is distinctive, although a sighting would help. The species is a rare recent summer migrant visitor to Canberra. The recent nature of this is so much so that I did not include it in the text of my "Canberra Birds: A Report on the first 18 years of the Garden Bird Survey", however a year later when I updated and reprinted it as "Canberra Birds: A Report on the first 21 years of the Garden Bird Survey" its status had increased sufficiently to include the species in the main text.
By the way, this book is now nearly sold out. (I have only two left, although some are at various shops etc.)
