Highlights from twice-weekly Canberra Ornithologists' Group (COG) hotline,

WHITE-NAPED HONEYEATERS 15,000 passing one point on the Murrumbidgee River
(Angle Crossing) on 19/4, plus some Fuscous and Red Wattlebirds;
Yellow-faced virtually all gone

GREY BUTCHERBIRD with sparrow jammed in fork of shrub, inner suburban Red Hill

DUSKY WOODSWALLOWS      still lots about, later than expected

YELLOW-TAILED BLACK-COCKIES     3 over suburban Duffy, 24/4. [very unusual,
though common in ranges and near suburban pine plantations]

WHITE-HEADED PIGEON     24/4, suburban Waramanga [this borders on the silly!]
