Thank you Mark.  You are probably right, as usual.



And UNGARIE!  The town of the moment!  Did you see the Big Sherrin?


Can I take this opportunity to ask if you have an email address of a bander who might have experience of koels?

Geoffrey et al,

Just back from a weekends banding at West Wyalong and Ungarie. Still quite a few Painted Honeyeaters at the latter site - banded 6 and 1 retrap - so i haven't had a chance to comment on your photos. Number 3 is a Silver Gashawk and by the look of it subspecies qantas.
