Significant sighting

8 May 2022

Rare, non-breeding autumn migrant and only the fourth photo record for Canberra Nature Map.

User's notes

Sitting up high in canopy by itself. All the little birds nearby were twittering. I thought it was a black-faced cuckooshrike, but had interesting breast feathers. The bird did not make a call.
