Hi there,

Sorry for the late report. Raja and I spent the Easter weekend with Ed Williams 
and Rob Hynson birding inland NSW.

Highlight: singing male Red-lored Whistler at Round Hill (sang only for a few 
minutes, got only suboptimal looks)

RFI: We heard that there were some people from Griffith who had Red-lored 
Whistler at Round Hill two weeks ago. Are there more sightings between spring 
2008 and now?
(except for Martin Cachard's first year bird last spring)

And here the list:

Emu: 7 and 6 between Forbes and Lake Cargelligo
Australian Shelduck: 11 at 
Fivebough and 45 at Lake Cargelligo
several duck species with small ducklings (including Pink-eared Duck)
Spotted Nightjar: 1 at Round Hill
five falcon species (including a pair of Black Falcons at Fivebough)
a late Pallid Cuckoo at Lake Cargelligo (but no Black-eared Cuckoos)
several inland 
parrots including Mulga 
Parrot plus Glossy 
Black Cockatoo (but no Turquoise Parrots and only a roadkilled Major Mitchell's 
a late Sacred Kingfisher at Back Creek
White-browed Treecreeper: 2 at Binya SF
Splendid and 
White-winged Fairy-Wrens
Shy Heathwren: common at Round Hill
Speckled Warbler (one male singing out in 
the open)
Chestnut-rumped and Inland Thornbill
Grey-fronted and White-fronted HE at Round Hill
Orange and White-fronted Chat at Round Hill
Ground Cuckoo-Shrike: a pair with a large juv at a nest at Round Hill
Gilbert's and Red-lored Whistler at Round Hill
Crested Bellbird
mixed groups of both mudnest builders
lots of Red-capped Robins

really outstanding mammals
