Author's notes

Hunted over Mt Davidson for a good half hour plus. Notable damage to central tail feathers could be useful for identifying an individual. Eventually flew off towards Mt Taylor after persistent harassment from Magpies and a Noisy Friar Bird.

Thanks Roy - is this a different bird to the one you saw last night?

Hi Michael M, I think it's the same one (dark morph, probable male).
