hi all
yesterday afternoon i watched a hobby do battle with some peewees (aust 
magpie-larks) - it lost - in seymour rd hamilton, bridsbane, one block north of 
busy kingsford-smith dr. it's the third time i've seen a hobby in the hamilton 
hill area in the past year and with the rock faces and remnants of scrub i 
suspect they could be resident. 

last week i was mustering on my in-laws' property 90km east of roma on the 
taroom rd.
birding was v limited - using binocs on a trail bike is even harder than on 
an elephant i suspect - but i couldn't miss the jabiru (black-necked stork) 
with a couple of royal spoonbills on the slowly refilling lagoon off bartons ck 
after recent storms. 
otherwise v quiet for birds after the long dry with no brolgas or bustards 
this time.
one WTNT about 10km east of roma (14.2) and one red-winged parrot beside the 
highway near wallumbilla (16.2) were about the only others of any interest.
apologies for the late postings.
back home little friarbirds are the latest to join the feast on our fruiting 
strangler fig in the backyard.
