To all birders

This is with regards to the message sent this week about birding in the   
Howes Valley-Putty area in NSW.

I regularly bird this area out each year.

Good places are at Bulga, at the end of the Putty Rd -good for Red-capped   
and Hooded Robins, many Speckled Warblers, Striped Honeyeaters, Western   
Warblers, White-backed Swallows, Plum-headed Finches and at times Painted   
Honeyeaters and Ground Cuckoo-shrikes.

At Howes Valley, 30-40km south of Bulga, this is a good place for Painted   
Button-quail, White-browed Woodswallows (esp. in drought years),Scarlet   
Robins, Blue-faced Honeyeaters, Grey-crowned Babblers and, if fortunate,   
Regent Honeyeaters (about 150 present there in 1994 for approx. 5 months   
and again in 1996 in smaller numbers)

Happy Birding
