Dear All

Had a noisy surprise yesterday Friday 23 Nov at 2 pm -
2 Channel-billed Cuckoos flew into a big fig tree just
below the Rose Gardens to the right of the Sydney
Conservatorium of Music, Royal Botanic Gdns, making a
tremendous noise and giving the resident Noisy Miners
and Pied Currawongs a shock. There may have been a
third one as one was seen been chased by a Currawong
but could have doubled back to the tree from which it
had flown; two sat openly in a fig tree with an
"admiring" audience of Noisy Miners, very concerned as
they had several fledglings nearby.
