Around 100 Dusky Woodswallows coming in to roost in pine trees along Jerrabomberra Ave in Narrabundah this evening. It was quite a spectacle! Definitely the largest flock I've seen of this species.

had an Olive-backed Oriole in my neighbour's jungle
yard, feeding on figs, last week.
Wayne/Ann, of the summer migrants Duskies are among the last to leave, and
along with the Olive-backed Oriole stay in reasonable numbers until about the
first or second week of May, though some stay and overwinter – the numbers that
stay varies with in 2013 very few duskies present during the winter
