Yes but also just sort of normal for the time of year in Canberra suburbs, for 
these species passing through. Usually fairly quietly and easily missed.

Last week we had a visit by a Sacred Kingfisher to our garden here in Florey, 
and right now there’s a Fan-tailed Cuckoo sitting quietly in the paperbark 
above the birdbath. Neither species is particularly gob-smacking, but quite 
unusual for us and perhaps an indicator of what may still be to come with the 
displacement of birds from Namadgi and elsewhere.
