The Spangled Drongo is becoming less “unusual” in the ACT, it seems. But in order for us to map its occurrence accurately, we need data, not only messages on the chat line. Could those first observers of the Jerra bird and the Bot Gardens bird please put in unusual bird reports (download a form from COG’s website), and all others a regular datasheet or electronic entry, so we can try and work out how long the bird(s) stay around. Other species still on the unusuals list (or about to be added to it) and observed recently include the Plumed Whistling-Duck, Black-tailed Native-hen, Black-eared Cuckoo, Figbird, Musk Lorikeet and Brown Gerygone. Records and datasheets please to – accompanied by a photo if you have one, but do compress the photo.  For the record, the Rarities Panel has received reports of the Musk Lorikeets (Dickson and Watson); the Plumed W-D; the cuckoo; the gerygones; BTNH at Jerra not elsewhere.
