Earlier this morning, in a bosky corner of Belconnen Golf Course land, I
heard a Black-faced Cuckoo-shrike calling. However, upon closer
inspection with binoculars, the caller turned out to be an Olive-backed
Oriole. Nice to see but not a great surprise as I understand the
Olive-backed Oriole is one of our best avian mimics
