In the last 2 days I have heard Stubble  Quail calling from the paddocks next to Campbell Park and Jerrabomberra Wetlands.

Four Cuckoos at our place in Wamboin over the last day: Koel (2), Brush
Cuckoo, Pallid Cuckoo and Shining Bronze-Cuckoo.

A curious baby Owlet-Nightjar responded to neighbourhood noise by
closely observing David mowing the grass under its nest box.

Other birds moving through in the last couple of days include Rufous
Fantail and White-throated Gerygone. Stubble Quail are again calling
from the lush paddock, after a long absence during the drought years.

A nice time to be out and about in the garden.
