Hi Graham

Yes, Andrew Taylor summed it up very well. Grey Currawongs are regular sightings in the upper Blue Mountains and breed each year in Wentworth Falls, Katoomba and Blackheath among other locations.

Your Emerald Dove is a VERY unusual sighting for the area. Can you provide more details of the location and habitat? The bird found at Woodford earlier this year is the only other Blue Mountains record that I know of.

Hi, Walking the Six Foot Track the other day 1-10-08 near Jenolan Caves cottages and we saw two Grey Currawongs on the forest floor - birds I had not seen before in the Blue Mountains. Also a few km before this saw an Emerald Dove foraging -another unusual sighting for me in this area.
