There were two adult Spectacled Monarchs, a White-eared Monarch and a Rufous 
Fantail at Iluka Nature Reserve, NSW North Coast on  April 6.  There were two 
Rufous Fantails at the same location on April 10.  Are these late departures or 
over-wintering birds?  I have recorded over-wintering Rufous Fantails at the 
site in recent years but not Spectacled Monarchs.  HANZAB states that 
Spectacled Monarchs depart Iluka as late as April 8 so they may be just the 
stragglers.  Rufous Fantails were never recorded over-wintering at the site 
until recently, although HANZAB reports over-wintering as far south as 
Victoria.  White-eared Monarchs may be present at the site all year.
