Dawn yesterday NW Kambah heard a Grey Butcherbird calling in the direction on Mt Taylor.  Hear a koel today (?) at dawn.  Can this be right?

1/8/12 between 2 and 3 pm:

2 Grey butcherbirds (heard, not seen) seemingly calling to each other, probably less than a kilometre apart, lower northwest of hill.

1 painted button quail, clearly seen in bright sunshine amidst short grass tussocks and rocks, upper slopes, northwest side of hill. Flew short distance and settled when flushed.


Also, one wary red necked wallaby close to the button quail.
