<John Clifton-Everest reported a Channel-billed Cuckoo flying over Glebe
and asked if this was unusual>

Hi John,
In the 1980s it would have been unusal to see CBCs over inter suburban
Glebe but not anymore. Along with large Moreton Bay Figs and Ficus hilli
that are widely planted in Glebe which provide food, and  plenty of
Currawongs for hosts for their young, Glebe is just as attractive now as
Sydney's North Shore for Channel-billed Cuckoos..
However your observation and that of Alan Leishman's of CBCs in the
Royal Botanical Gardens will be mentioned in the "Unusual records"
section of the Feb 1999 NSWFOC Newsletter.
Info on the increase of Channel-bills and Currawongs in the Sydney
Region has been published in a number of places.
