Rose Robin -Redwood Park (Bridge Street entrance) 9/4/06

In 2006, we set up the inaugral Challenge to see if we could collectively record 250 species during the year in the club's survey area. How did we go? Extremely well considering the drought... Plenty of unusual and rare birds .... some great records from non-members too. It was a fascinating year. And a worthwhile exercise which we encourage other groups to follow. See for yourself...

Earlier Rose Robin arrival

Postby Mick Atzeni » Mon Apr 10, 2006 11:08 pm

Michael's sighting would have to be one of the earliest on record. I checked my own diary and the earliest I've seen one in Toowoomba area is 16 April (1989). That was a female too, seen in Glen Lomond Park.

Has anyone ever recorded an earlier arrival date than 9 April?[/quote]

Rose Robin - Digger's Lookout, Mount Table Top

Postby Rod Hobson » Thu Apr 13, 2006 8:46 am


Also saw Rose Robin last Sunday morning (09.04.06) in dry vine scrub, eastern face of Mount Table Top and, even more curiously, a single Restless Flycatcher here at that time as well, probably passing through this small remnant of atypical habitat from cleared lands below. My first record of Restless Flycatcher from Mount Table Top.

Apologies for this late posting, have been away in field at Duke's Plains near Isla Gorge. What a place. Birdlife amazing.
