This message may be of particular interest to David McDonald who in 2015 recommended me to the excellent Mystery Bay cottages, sth of Narooma.


A few wks ago we were there; stepped out in a v slight but well-lit grey drizzle to find a pair of said birds high atop a tree’s bare branch, v clearly exposed, with  their iridescent back feathers gleaming & giving a  bright (almost lime) green appearance. 2 yrs a go I thought I glimpsed one of these birds on a deeply shadowed branch of a dark tree so was not absol. certain of what it was.  No mistake this time; v exciting.


(The usual Wonga pigeons were frequently to be seen waddling about , + many yellow robins, not waddling.)
