Birdline Australian Capital Territory

Published sightings for the week ending 9 Feb 2014.

Sat 8 Feb Cockatiel Mount Ainslie Reserve
We've seen a single bird in the Duffy St, Ainslie area for more than a week. This morning it was on Mt Ainslie west. Occasionally we think we can hear more than one but haven't yet been able to confirm that. [Moderator's comment: It is always questionable whether single Cockatiels like this are truly of wild origin.FA]

I heard the unmistakeable call of the cuckoo this morning. This is the third time over the years I have heard the call over my home, but I have never managed to see the bird.
