Sorry and some of the more geographically astute may have noticed...... In my doing a message quickly before, my: "I was driving westwards toward Tibooburra" that should have been Thargomindah (not that there is a big difference). It was long ago and I mixed it because I was headed towards Tibooburra after crossing the border through Sturt NP.

Yes when in SE Aust they will be birds of (or over) the tall canopy. There was a pair seen by most people (including me) at the BOC christmas camp near Omeo in east Gippsland in and over tall forest and edges. But much of their range is not forest land (maybe even less so with agricultural clearing).  The first one I saw (late August 1982) was in very open country in SW Qld. It was a purely random sighting for me. I was driving westwards toward Tibooburra and decided in the morning that I would stop for a rest at the point when my car odometer turned 70000. Which is what I did. There were hardly any birds there. I walked around and as I was about to set off again I saw it slowly floating over a row of low trees along the roadside, so watched it there for a while.
