Sun 22Pacific Baza
E of Coutts Crossing Village
Adult Baza feeding one of two nestlings in nest in mistletoe in Cabbage Gum. One nestling spent some time on a branch before moving back into the nest. At one time the adult flew to the ground and caught a green insect (stick insect/grasshopper) ate part of it and then delivered the remains to one of the nestlings. Nest first located by Gary & Margaret Eggins in the morning.

highlightPale morph Wedge-tailed Shearwater, Gould's Petrel
Port Stephens pelagic
A pale morph Wedge-tailed Shearwater was the probably the 'rarest' sighting for the day on the pelagic out of Port Stephens yesterday. It was seen on two occasions inshore on our return leg, both times frustratingly briefly and no photos were taken. However, the bird was seen clearly enough by several observers to rule out any possible confusion risks. 2 Gould's Petrels were seen in deep water on a very quiet drift (only 2 species were added to the day's list in deep water; the other being a single White-faced Storm-petrel). There were no Grey-faced Petrels or Flesh-footed Shearwaters out wide and virtually every Fleshy we saw (about 25 birds) was within ~5 miles from the heads. 4 Shy-type, 1 adult Black-browed and 3 immature Black-browed type Albatross were seen, along with a possible Long-tailed Jaeger and a Common Tern a few miles out of the heads (a first for Port Stephens trips). A distant all-white bird very high at the shelf was likely a tropicbird but could not be seen properly.
