Tue 26highlightSuperb Fruit-Dove
East of Booroorban (Riverina)
David Nevinson found a male Superb Fruit-Dove feeding on harlequin mistletoe berries east of Booroorban. The first record for the district. (Moderator's Note: an incredible record this far south, inland, and alive! MB).

Mon 25Scarlet Honeyeater
Pilliga National Park--Gilgai Flora Reserve
After an earlier sighting by A. Rudder (on ebird) at the Pilliga SCA, now Scarlet Honeyeaters were found in the Gilgai section of Pilliga NP, some 30 km S of Wee Waa, at the northern end of the Pilliga Forest. Audio was recorded and is included with the ebird list. This is the first predominantly coastal species that I have found this far west in a long time. Lots of Mugga Ironbarks are in flower in the area, attracting all kinds of nectarivores (dominated by thousands of Noisy Friarbirds). eBird checklist

Magpie Geese
Wetland behind grain receival complex at Narromine
About 200 Magpie Geese at this site, which is now about 75% full of water as I went past this afternoon. Clearly visible from the Tullamore Rd near rail crossing. These birds have been a common visitor to this site in recent years and even nested here a couple of years ago.

Mon 25Swift Parrot
Royal Park, Parkville
About 6 or 7 Parrots seen at approximately 4:10pm at McPherson Field in the trees bordering the field and Poplar Road. Red face and blue forehead easily seen and red wing linings in flight also observed for clear identification. A bus pulled up soon after birds were observed and the birds then dispersed into the nearby trees within the golf course. eBird checklist
