Hi Guys,

Noticed Joshua Bergmark's post of Noisy Pittas (2) at Warriewood Wetlands 
(Sydney) on Friday.

Currently we have had what seems to be rise in Pitta obs at the southern end of 
their range. In the last couple of years we have seen more than the usual 
number of sitings in the Hunter Region and there were Pittas calling at a 
number of sites in the Gosford LGA last spring, sounding very much like 
territorial establishment.

The birds at Warriewood make one wonder how far south they might be showing up. 
Is there any chance they might reach the rainforest patches of the Illawarra? 
Any one in that neck of the woods had a sniff??
