Sun 17Mulga Parrot
A lone male Mulga Parrot was observed perched on a powerline near the centre of Coonabarabran. It flew off a short time later to feed on a nearby lawn. The time of observation was 6:37pm EDST. It is the first time I have seen one of these parrots in Coonabarabran and it is quite a distance further east than where they would normally be found. (Moderator's Note: I think that this could be an aviary escapee, over my 40 years association with Coonabarabran, the nearest that I ever saw Mulga Parrots to Coonabarabran is Hermidale (west of Nyngan) and in the Macquarie Marshes between Quambone and Willi!, 256 and 110 km respectively..AKM)

Sat 16Aleutian Tern
Farquhar Inlet, Old Bar
4x Aleutian Terns photographed at the inlet. Ongoing birds expected to leave soon. (Moderator's Note: This is the first report this autumn. It was the 23/03/2018 when birds were first noticed attaining breeding plumage and this front bird appears to be transitioning. All Aleutian Terns were all gone by mid-April last year so we will hopefully see breeding-plumaged birds again in the coming weeks. MR). eBird checklist
