   Fri 26 Dec Spiny-cheeked Honeyeater Pacific Harbour Golf Course, Bribie
   Island, Queensland, AU
   The highlight this morning was 1 Spiny-cheeked Honeyeater. The bird was
   quite vocal so alerted its presence. A bit of Striped Honeyeater
   activity - very vocal - amongst the usual suspects. Photograph of S-c
   Honeyeater attached.

   Wed 24 Dec Pair of Horsefields Bronze-cuckoos Sandy Camp Road Wetlands
   Not great photos but worth reporting as Horsefields Bronze-cuckoos are
   uncommon here and this morning a pair were chasing each other around a
   tree and calling.
