Fine. They are a very common species in Canberra, somewhat more so in warmer
months. (From the GBS Report, they are the 13th most often recorded
species.) But that is OK, we all have firsts. I remember being pleased and
wanting to tell others the first time I saw Silvereyes near my home (but
that was long before we had computers).

Howdy All,

Probably a bird I should have seen a lot of, but it was a first for 
me.  When I was at the National Zoo & Aquarium today I was watching a 
Black Faced Cuckoo Shrike.  I have a vague feeling I might have seen 
one before, but it certainly isn't something I usually see 
about.  Unfortunately I get little chance to travel and look for 
things, but I thought I would mention it in case it were of interest 
to anyone?  I've never observed one there in previous visits.  It was 
a lot bigger than I expected!!

Just in case anyone is interested, it was right near the entrance in 
a tree above the Marmosets.  A nice addition to the things I viewed 
at the zoo, including the adorable baby Ring tailed Lemurs that have 
only recently been on public display.
