Condamine River

Post by Alastair Silcock » Wed Sep 11, 2013 8:11 am

Was shown around a property on the Condamine floodplain on Monday with good waterholes, although drying out fast. Around 20 species of waterbirds. Great variety, and hundreds of whistling ducks. A few to add to the Spring list:

cattle egret
royal spoonbill
yellow-billed spoonbill
glossy ibis
black swan
plumed whistling duck
pink-eared duck
crested pigeon
scaly breasted lorikeet
cockatiel
red-winged parrot
red-rumped parrot
tawny frogmouth
starling
