BIRDWALK NOVEMBER 2017

Birdwalk November 2017

Our last boardwalk of the year was to Seventeen Mile Rocks Park at Jindalee. While this was more of a social outing we had a number of interesting and unusual sightings of the area (now very busy with people and human activities). A Little Corella taking the seed pods of an introduced cassia? tree in the carpark, a young Magpie Goose flying overhead, a male Darter in full breeding plumage perched on a rock in the river and our first sighting of a Dusky Honeyeater were of special note. The Dusky Honeyeaters seem to be extending their range southwards as one was sighted recently in Sherwood Arboretum. Of note was that we did not see the smaller species such as fairy-wrens, finches and scrub-wrens that we have sighted in past years.
