On the Canberra Ornithologists Group Easter campout on a property near
Condobolin (central western slopes, NSW), we saw almost daily groups of
Superbs, most heading north(-ish), but not all. This at approx. 147 32 E, 32
45 S. On Sunday 23 April just west of Dandaloo (147 37 10 E, 32 16 55 S), a
flock of 25 was flying north in the late afternoon.

This area is not in the usual summer or winter ranges, so these birds were
presumably moving to their Namoi/Gwydir overwintering area. May be of some
use in filling in migration routes.
