Some quite interesting sightings around Maleny (southern Blackall Range) in past week. After 4 years of regularly hearing Sooty Owl during months of March & April, finally got to lay eyes on a single bird on 17/3 in early am, but haven't heard (or seen) since.
 Other visitors have included Crested Shriketit, seen for first time on our property in over 10 years, hanging around pool of water on top of a rainwater tank close to house. There is little water around at present and as this pool is relatively sheltered it is attracting a number of visitors. In a 20 minute period on Monday the pool was utilised by Brown Thornbill, Red-browed Finch, Golden Whistler, Grey Shrike-Thrush, Lewins H/e. Close by, but not quite game, were White-throated Treecreeper, Little Shrike-Thrush and we then found a male Regent Bowerbird whilst searching for the Crested Shriketit.
     We also have had a pair of White-eared Monarch (another infrequent visitor)feeding a juvenile for the past 2 weeks , and today a pair of Varied Triller (regulars here) were also observed feeding a youngster. There are also young Black-faced Monarch, adult Spectacled Monarch,and the pair of Spangled Drongo who sucessfully raised young still remain.
   Off to Canungra for a birding Easter with BQ.
