This date reference needs clarification. Seasons are inappropriate as date references per the Manual of Style and a more precise date reference needs to be provided here from primary references. In particular, this date reference is hard to disambiguate because it is discussing a bird that is native to Australia with sightings in the USA. Whose "autumn" is intended here? If the northern autumn, why must it be allowed to remain in an article with a general southern-hemisphere context? -- B.D.Mills (T, C) 12:33, 4 January 2010 (UTC)
