At Campbell Park this morning, a Black-eared Cuckoo.

Breeding: White-winged Trillers, Magpie, Noisy Miner, Speckled Warbler
and Varied Sitella are still (dy). I observed a Brown-headed Honeyeater
work on a nest until it was chased away by a Dusky Woodswallow which
then worked on the nest.  Weebill (on). A pair of Brown-headeds lurked
while the Woodswallow was doing its home improvement routine.  Immatures
include Black-faced Cuckoo-shrike, Leaden Flycatcher, Galah, Laughing
Kookaburra, Common Bronzewing, Dusky Woodswallow, Grey Fantail,
Buff-rumped Thornbill, Crimson Rosella, Eastern Rosella. A pair of
Sulphur-cresteds is chewing away at a tree hollow.
