There is 2 breeding pair that I've heard about on the Northern Beaches this
year. There is a pair at Oxford Falls that I first noticed about 2 years
ago. I noticed a small chick in the same area about 3 or 4 months ago.
Also I heard about a year ago about 2 pair breeding at Elanora Heights that
had chicks last year.
I saw 3 adults at Deep Creek in September, near where the Bronzewings are
I also noticed a dead one on the side of the road around Belrose(?) about a
month ago. And others have reported seeing them there as well.

Got a couple in Beecroft (N.W. Sydney) - they've ignored my "garden"! We
back on to a little park, near Devlin's creek, which ends up in Lane Cove
River. A handy corridor for birds, such as the E. Whipbird turning up from
time to time.
