You are correct, it is a juvenile Black-faced Cuckoo-shrike and not too long out of the nest. Peter Marsack will be interested in this photo as he is doing some illustrations of juvenile birds. I will forward your original message to him.

Well, I suppose it was a juvenile black faced cuckoo shrike that I saw.  With all this talk of cuckoos around, I am beginning to wonder.

This morning there was at least one white-browed woodswallow at the Namadgi Visitors’ Centre.  I saw one, but that was on two occasions, about 50 metres apart, so it may not have been the same bird.


Also saw a pair of leaden flycatchers, numerous noisy friar birds with dependent young, a black-faced cuckoo-shrike trying to feed a juvenile with a large hard beetle which it spat out, and superb fairy wren feeding a juvenile.
