Author's notes

Channel-billed Cuckoo found deceased on Wignell Road (most likely hit by vehicle). Another juvenile bird present calling continuously. Interesting sighting which seems to becoming more common each year. Host bird was an Australian Raven. Bird taken to Charles Sturt University to use for teaching purposes.
