Went out looking for an Emerald Dove (yet to see one) this morning at Matcham on the NSW Central Coast following up on a tip from Nevil Lazarus. Am still yet to see an Emerald Dove but a pretty good morning was had despite sporadic light showers and the overcast gloom of the morning. Tried out my little bird-whistle and got the attention of a juvenile Rufous Fantail (I think) who was very curious and approached within a couple of metres.
Species seen were:
Superb Fairy-wren
Veriegated Fairy-Wren
Yellow-tail Black Cockatoo
Eastern Rosella
Rainbow Lorikeet
Great Cormorant
White-faced Heron
Australian Pelican
Australian Wood-duck
Australian Magpie
