   Australian White Ibis Waramanga ACT
   About 7.45 pm, a flock of white ibis circled over a timbered reserve
   immediately behind our residence, then settled for about 20 minutes in
   an old yellow box E. melliodora, amidst a roost of noisy sulphur
   crested cockatoos. 25 counted. At about 8.10 pm 22 departed in a
   north-easterly direction leaving a small number behind. First ever
   sighting of this bird in 15+ years residence in this Weston area
   suburb. By contrast, Straw necked ibis occasionally seen foraging on
   nearby grassed school yards and other open grassy areas, usually in
   cooler months.

   Channel-billed Cuckoo Bibaringa, Cotter Rd (restricted access)
   At 0815 this morning I was alerted by the unmistakable raucous call of
   a Channel-billed Cuckoo. I then observed the bird flying southeast
   towards Chapman.
