Wed 26 Dec Oriental Cuckoo Atherton
One was observed today at about 5:30pm in a Poinciana Tree, on the Atherton State High School grounds. I've also observed a Juvenile Oriental cuckoo in Atherton on the 30-11-12 and the 1-12-12, these three sightings were probably two different birds.

Black-chinned Honeyeater Mount Louisa (Suburb)
Black-chinned Honeyeaters (8) were feeding in the Calliandras in our front yard this morning. Infrequently seen here. Never have we seen 8 simultaneously. The local Brown and White-gaped Honeyeaters made them feel very unwelcome and often expelled them to powerlines or neighbouring trees.
