I am sending this again as I accidently included a picture and it was 
distributed as a text file which is harder to read.

The Pallid Cuckoo is an irregular visitor (migrant) to the Clarence Valley 
north coast NSW.  In some years they are very common and are seen or heard 
daily while in other years they are absent.  My only record this year in the 
Valley was of a juvenile on Woodford Island on Saturday November 16.  Rufous 
Songlarks are even less regular than the Pallid Cuckoo.  A couple of years back 
they were present at a few local sites and individuals have occurred over the 
years.  My only local record this year is of a lone bird at Southgate Creek on 
November 14 and 16.  It wasn’t observed there during a brief stop on November 
21.  Brown Songlarks are very rare locally.
