A couple of sightings in Wallaroo Rd area over past two days.  Whilst pruning at Brindabella Hills vineyard (BHV) yesterday, a White-bellied Sea-eagle flew north along the Murrumbigee River (COG AOI H10) and when driving home from BHV this arvo sighted a Pied Butcherbird along Brooklands Rd (COG AOI H11).

Could these be the progeny of two of the 3 Bassian Thrushes that Mary Cooper and I saw on 15 May in that same area?


Another less palatable thought,  could the large bird in the nest be a cuckoo?  (remembering the pallid cuckoo in the Regent Honeyeater’s nest in Watson).  Wrong timing?  Red herring?
