   Sat 27 Dec Spotted Nightjar Private farming property, 14 kms SW of
   Alarm calls by Willie Wagtail and White-plumed Honeyeater drew my
   attention to a Spotted Nightjar roosting on ground. Other birds nearby
   included White-Browed, Masked and Dusky Woodswallows with fledged
   young, 2 pairs of bee-eaters feeding young in nest tunnels, more than
   20 Elegant Parrots, and a pair of White-backed Swallows, which nest
   regularly here.
