Tony Russell very reasonably asked, re my note about the Cerulean Paradise
Flycatcher,  "Where's Sangihe?"

Unfortunately the item in The Weekend Australian didn't say, but my atlas
shows such a place a little over 100 km north of the northern-most part of
Sulawesi.  I reckon that must be it.

  In Australia, we used to know Sulawesi as Celebes.  It's that large
island with several very long arms.  To the north one arm swings east then
north.  Continue that northerly direction for another 100 km or so and one
arrives at Sangihe.  The Atlas shows "Sangihe I" and "Sangihe II".  Maybe
there are two islands.

There must be someone at birding-aus who knows and can say for sure?
