Bush Stone-curlew, bush-hen and others

Post by Mick Atzeni » Mon Feb 22, 2016 12:14 am

Some nice birds around home lately including first records of Varied Sittella and White-bellied Cuckoo-shrike for our property.

A significant record was a couple of Bush Stone-curlews calling on dusk in the vicinity of Koreelah St, Upper Lockyer on 10/2. Thanks to the Caudell family for reporting this one. (I only had one record in the 5.5 years I lived at Upper Lockyer).

Was also good to hear a bush-hen calling down on the creek at "Tiddalac" when I was there briefly 6/2
