Hi Russell and birding-aussers

This is the first time a have seen Little Ravens in our area too. You see them at Gloucester and up through Walcha area and also across the other side of the range towards Scone. We didn't get Torresian Crows until recently either so perhaps Little Ravens are expanding their territory or just lost !

Hi Dick

Some nice sightings there.  I'm surprised to find Little Ravens there.

I used to "collect" Littles - whenever I went somewhere new, I'd always make an effort to 
find a "Little" for the trip, so there are some rather nice birds on my list - Little 
Gull, Little Ringed Plover, Little Green Bee-Eater, Little Forktail, Little Spiderhunter, Little 
Owl ... I added my 22nd with Little Crow near Uluru earlier this year.

Hi all

Not often I add new birds to the home list these days but two new "little" birds within a week. Firstly a group of 5 Little Ravens flew over and were immediately mobbed and pushed off course by some Torresian Crows from one direction and Australian Ravens from another. The other morning 2 Little Lorikeets flew over and then landed in the trees along our front fence. List now stands at 127.

The first White-winged Triller I have seen in this area was observed in a Coral Tree in the neighbor's drive way . Nearly got him !!

A brisk exercise walk , without stopping and no binoculars, along our road for 15 minutes one way and back the same way , yielded 53 species of birds one beautiful Spring morning about 3 weeks ago. This included seeing no less than 12 Dollar Birds.
