Author's notes

I saw a lone Dollarbird among the tops of the trees on the ridge leading down to Hughes. I only saw one but it was moving between several trees in that location. It chased a magpie that landed on the lower branches of a tree. Later the magpie took an opportunity to return the favour when the Dollarbird flew to another tree. I saw a Dollarbird, possibly the same one as above, chased by two Noisy Miners when it came down close to near the golf course. I also saw a Dollarbird, again, could be the same one, flying near where the Hughes nature corridor meets the golf course.
