Dear All,

Serendipitous event on the way home from work. Near the top of the Cullundean Range crossing (Kangaroo Pass -34.886022, 149.617223 ) on Currawang Road, a male Hooded Robin flew with swoops and dives and turns in front of my car (!) then perched on a dead tree. With a truck close behind, I turned at the next available driveway and returned for a closer look, but he'd gone. My third sighting of a male in different locations, all along Currawang Road.

This was after a massive Wedge-tailed Eagle flew from the side of the road where Currawang Road joins the Braidwood Road outside Goulburn -34.834975, 149.682836 , over the fence into pasture with something smallish in his claws. There followed from a nearby large radiata, another to join him on the ground.  All in pouring rain.

Hoping your Friday has many wonderful bird sightings,
