Hi Rod,

I would be interested to know how far back your records of overwintering Rufous Fantails go. Is it a recent phenomenon? Unlike southern and central NSW Rufous Whistlers and White-throated Gerygones are present all year on the NSW North Coast, although some may migrate. Rufous Whistlers numbers have usually increased at Coutts Crossing during the autumn-winter but in the last 3 or 4 years they have been scarce.

Rainbow Bee-eaters are considered to over-winter north from Iluka, NSW.
