I have had one in my GBS area and sometimes in my actual property, each week since week 1 of January but strangely only noted on 3 weeks for the July to December period.

I have also had the pleasure of a Grey Butcher bird it has been here ( Giralang ) all week . One has come through every year for the past 8-10 years but this is the first time one has stayed this long .

A first - just had a visit by an adult Grey Butcherbird to our birdbath (lower Ainslie) for a thorough bath.

One was briefly on the powerlines a few days ago.
