Over the last month I have seen all the Australian diurnal raptor species with the exception of the Letter-wing Kite and Black-breasted Buzzard, within a half hour drive of home. Yesterday, when exiting the Yungaburra State Forest heading south, I saw a Spotted Harrier crossing the road. Above him was a Black Kite. Perched on consecutive fence posts fifty metres along the road were Wdgetailed Eagle, Brown Falcon and Whistling Kite. To the right over some maize was a Swamp Harrier. Six species seen in almost as little time as needed to register their presence.
