For the past 4 weeks, a Grey Currawong has been clearly visible, happily jumping around in open garden space and singing freely in the more wooded parts of Currawang, a few kilometres South-East of Collector.
Today, for the first time, sighted in the heavily wooded zone of the Currawang Road at the peak of the Cullendean Range.  Not really surprising to find one there, but to have been watching for many years, and only now seeing one.  There is a spot half-way between Tarago and Bungendore that is open grassland - grazing paddocks, that has a few solitary trees lining the road - where I sighted a GC three times over 5 years.  Now that was surprising, as there was no woodland close enough to provide a corridor.
On the same trip early afternoon, many small flocks of Pied Currawongs, after only random sightings of small flocks up until now.
