I'm curious - are you? Normally by mid-August around where I live the air
is thick with the calls of Pallid Cuckoos. One can barely move through the
countryside edgewise without bumping into a few.
It's nearly October and I haven't heard one around home, or in various
other places up to Kyneton or down to Melton/Bacchus Marsh (southern edge
of central Victoria) where I've been in the last month. There are a few
bronze-cuckoos about (Shining and Horsfield's) and small numbers of
Fan-tailed Cuckoos (including night-calling birds with this full moon).

Interested to hear from anyone who does have Pallid Cuckoos
arriving/arrived, or is this just a really odd year for the species?
