Marginally on-topic: 

Here in glorious Lucinda, we are enjoying watching Drongos, Blue-faced Honeyeaters, Helmeted and Silver-Crowned Friarbirds forming long queues stretching for hundreds of metres along the sugar train-tracks where they sip the syrup spilling from the trains.  A new experience for us.

No doubt the Duffy Drongo is having a tougher time.

Hi all

I've just had a call from Beth Mantle. She's running with her dog at Narrabundah Hill in Duffy and has just stumbled across a Spangled Drongo!

Beth thought she may have been back in Queensland, except for the fact that it's currently zero degrees!!

Directions. There's a small car parking area on the western side of Eucumbene Drive, just north of the corner at Hindmarsh Drive (apparently well known to dog walkers and other visitors to the hill). Walk about 150m north along the path beside Eucumbene Drive to a small cluster of watlles.
