Thu 19 Jun Grey Falcon Bedourie, Diamantina Development Road
Two birds flew beside mini van as we traveled towards Bedourie, after stoping they then spiraled up above the watching birders who were on Chook Crawford's Channel County Tour, we had brilliant views and really got to absorb the 'jizz' of these two gorgeous birds, this was the second pair two be sighted on our 10 day tour around Queenslands Channel Country

Possible Painted Snipe Lake Samsonvale
I received a report of a female Painted Snipe flushed multiple times from the water's edge at Lake Samsonvale. This observer does not have experience with this species, but was convincing in their description to me. The site is on the South Side of Gold Scrub Road at the first body of water you can see, coming in from the Dayboro Hwy. Unfortunately, I am heading overseas and can't verify this siting myself.

Sat 7 Jun White-bellied Cuckoo-shrike (Dark Morph) Sheepstation Creek Conservation Park, Caboolture
It was seen near the White-bellied Cuckoo-shrike that is also reported here. It was actually photographed 5 minutes earlier and at first I thought I had the same bird. I didn't put it up the same day as the others, as I want to check if I got the I.D right. I posted it a few days after and turns out the internet gremlins got it, so doing it again. So Sorry about the big delay.
