G'day All ,

For those interested in Channel-billed cuckoo recording, the first were
sighted for this season here at Byron Bay Saturday 25th Sept .
Last year the first I recorded was October 14TH , they remained here until
the 31st March , (Fig trees were still fruiting quite heavy ) .
No Koels heard or sighted yet.

B.T.W, At present I have seven pairs of Eastern Rosellas nesting
simultaneously in seven nest boxes within a radius of 50 Mtrs , I
originally hung the boxes in different trees , at varying heights and
aspects , to offer a choice to one or two resident pairs . In the midst of
nesting now , all seem calm and "well behaved " after a lot of sorting out
indifferences a few weeks ago .
