Hello birders,

While Swift Parrots are cruising around Bruny Island in Tasmania, there are 
others being seen around Toowoomba!  I kid you not!  There are also swifties 
around in the Maryborough and Bendigo areas.  Why Swift Parrots would remain 
in Queensland until mid September is beyond me.  I would be interested in other 
Queensland records from the last few years-  I have received a few lately, and 
appears that there are Queenland records from four of the last five years, 
means the movement that far north is more regular than we thought.

Spring truly starts for me with the song of the Rufous Whistler.  I saw and 
many at Terrick Terrick National Park in northern Victoria at the weekend, 
with the marvellous Western Gerygone and some Mallee Ringnecks.
