since someone spotted swift parrots there earlier this year, I occasionally go to the southern end of Hoskins Street, when in Mitchell, for a 30 min quick birdwatch. The area around that dogleg of Hoskins Street and Bellenden Street is quite rewarding.
First I thought I'd only see Starlings (mimiking all sorts of birds) today, but eventually did see a Dusky Woodswallow, Pallid Cockoo (juv/1 yr plumage) on the fence line, White-winged Triller (breeding plumage) and Black-faced cuckoo-shrike.
Did hear a Striated Pardalote, which I don't think came from the starlings.
The rest were the usual suspects.
The Triller took it's time beating/rubbing a caterpillar or worm against a branch, again and again, changing positions and branches frequently.
Woodswallow, Cuckoo and Triller I'd previously only seen outside the ACT, so I'm quite satisfied, though windblown.
