Mon 11White bellied cuckoo shrike, race robusta.
Taabinga Home, Kingaroy. Private, near golf course.
I have not seen this race, robusta, for 30 years, since 1 at Girraween in 1989. I assume a rare morph?

Wed 6highlightAustralian Masked Owl
Private property, 9 Miles Rd, Sulphur Creek
While spotlighting for mammals on a private property a Masked Owl called spontaneously from a creekline with old growth forest in it. Subsequent playback yielded a strong response, with the owl hovering above us and landing nearby. Listening the next day during the first hour after dusk didn't result in a call and playback was not attempted to avoid disturbance. Will have another listen later this week. Property not accessible to general public but access for research purposes might be feasible. Morepork also present on the property.
