Hi all,

Following on from Murray Lord and Kurtis Lindsay message about NSW Birdline, I 
would also like to remind all those who have made any interesting or unusual 
bird sightings to inform Birdline Victoria. To reiterate, bird sightings are 
valuable way of knowing where birds frequent, what they are doing, and when 
they are at certain locations. It is also a good way of determining patterns of 

The recent sightings of Common Koel in Victoria are a good example of this. 
These sightings suggests that we may be looking at the movements of a handful 
of birds around Victoria. For example, a Koel was recently seen in East 
Brunswick and then a few days later in the Melbourne Botanical Gardens. Prior 
to this Koel had been recorded at several sites in country Victoria including 
Bendigo, Bruthen, Boisdale and Marlo. Due to their amazing call Koel are fairly 
hard to miss. One could speculate that the Melbourne bird is one of these 
previously recorded country birds. My money is on Bendigo!
