The Glebe Park triller has been singing lustily all this week so far - easily heard even from the Target rooftop parking. This morning when I went looking for it, I also heard a (presumed) female alternating calls, much less strident, with the male.
Also of interest to me, as something not really expected there, was a male Rufous Whistler. Made me wonder if the very dry conditions in the local woodlands are forcing some birds into more urban locations.

Does it seem to anyone else that there are a lot more WW Trillers in Canberra at the moment that in previous springs?  In the last day I have heard them at Mawson, Curtin and Yarralumla.

I was very surprised to hear a White-winged Triller in full voice in Glebe Park this arvo.
