  6. Number observed: 8

    Details: An exceptional number here (possibly over 10 birds), have only a handful of records for this species here over 20 years, although the few records probably a partial result of me not being familiar with their call until recently. Birds were focussed on the Alphitonia trees with their abundance of looper moth caterpillars, and some average images revealed most birds with caterpillars in their beaks. Mostly using their tew tew call, and responded immediately to playback, using a very rapid almost raptor like flight to fly down over my head into nearby trees.
