New Caledonian Flycatcher (Myiagra caledonica): Uncommon in forest at RB and Mt. Koghi, it has typical harsh Myiagra scold. Southern Shrikebill (Clytorhynchus pachycephaloides) NE: Uncommon at RB, the only place I found it. I saw two at the start of the forest patch there, and heard another. New Caledonian Crow (Corvus moneduloides): I saw this curiously scarce and somewhat short winged Jackdaw-like species twice in forest by the Grand Kaori, each time just 2 or 3 birds. More
