That is the main suggestion, and looking at the field guide it seems a real possiblity. I have never seen one, so the thought did not cross my mind. Somewhat out of season though, for the ACT, I am told.



Yes, I nearly mentioned that it seems a little early for them, but a quick glance at the birding-aus list (plus my own observations) suggest that we can't take anything for granted regarding when or why birds (or other creatures) do what they do. Whether it's climate change or other subtle variations only birds can detect, who knows? By the way, just prior to receiving your email, I received one from "Marion" on the South Coast saying she could hear one as she wrote, so they may well be "early".
