Birdline Northern Territory

Published sightings for the week ending 5 Jan 2014.

Sun 5 Jan       Black-breasted Buzzard Alice Springs
One bird located on the Ross Highway approx. 30 kms from AS. It was feeding on 
road kill. In flight the bird had large white 'windows' near the point of its 
wing and displayed a short tail, supported by photos and thus eliminating the 
potential of a young wedgie.

Fri 3 Jan       Western Bowerbird Olive Pink Botanical Gardens, Alice Springs
I realise that this species is not uncommon around this area but to sit and be 
witness to the courtship display and interaction between the male and female 
for 20 minutes was something special. I could not believe the antics the male 
used! I wish i had filmed it! It gave a great insight into bowerbird behaviour. 
A truly amazing experience only metres away hiding in a bush.
