Sat 15White-fronted Chat
Denman Prospect, Wyndam Avenue
A friend just sent me this cropped phone image of three birds he saw running up & down the footpaths adjacent to a construction site at Denman Prospect last week. He thought they were a Chat but wasn't sure. Three birds seen, believed to be two males & a female.

Wed 19Pacific Baza, Spotted Harrier, Satin Flycatcher
Oatley Park
Pacific Baza reported by a local birder on 19 Feb to north of baths at Oatley Park. I found the bird later in the evening, toward the lower entrance gate. Someone at the park told me they'd seen 3 Bazas in Baker St in recent days. Same local birder posted photo of young Spotted Harrier flying over baths on 18 Feb and male Satin Flycatcher at Webster's lookout on 16 Feb, with comment about a possible female at Jewfish Bay lookout although I didn't personally locate those two species. eBird checklist

Wompoo Fruit Dove
Fig tree - waters edge opposite 68 Little Street, Forster
There are a pair of these birds living in the fig tree. We first noticed these birds only a few weeks ago, having never seen them in this area before. (Moderator's Note: While it is not unusual to have Wompoo Pigeon in rainforest patches in Forster, it is unusual to see them perched on a surburban balcony. AKM)
