Hi Birders,

Lorne's hearing of a Pied Butcherbird at Ashbury, an almost inner suburb in western Sydney, is very unusual and if sighted would be a most unsusual record. Up to 1991 there was only one record, in1968 but on 3/8/1991 an adult was seen at Heathcote in Sydney's south. This record was referred to and accepted by NSWORAC as the second Sydney record. I don't think there have been any subsequent records.
