Failed to go first time on Tuesday 13th July.  It would appear a number
of people had problems too.

Hello everyone.

We are new to the net and Birding-Aus.

Yesterday (12.7.99) at 17.15 hours we observed a Spiny-cheeked
Honeyeater (Acanthagenys rufogularis) in our garden.  This would appear
to be well east of it's normal range.  The position of our property is
27.05S, 152,54E,

Has anyone sighted any other birds of this species this far east lately?

There is an observation record of 2 birds of this species at Bribie
Island (approximately 20 kms east of here) back on 29 June 1991 by Ian &
Lois McRae.

Other highlights for the day were a Satin Bowerbird - uncommon at our
place (altitudinal migrant).  A light phase Little Eagle overhead, and a
Square-tailed Kite low over the trees at the rear of the property.  (The
Kite was seen by Rob Kernot during a brief stop here - I missed it while
picking mandarins!)
