I think I will have the opportunity
to spend the weekend 15/16 January (and perhaps 17th) in the
Adelaide area following some work there next week, and hence would love to hire
a car and get some birding done.
I’d appreciate suggestions as to
where to target within, say, a 2.5 hour drive of Adelaide city. Would need hotel/motel accommodation as
I won’t be able to bring camping gear with me. Are there any field days/weekends being organised by the
local birding groups that I could possibly join please?
Birds of particular interest, if they
are feasible in the area, are:
Red-chested Button-Quail, Little
Lewin’s Rail, Spotless Crake and
Baillon’s Crake (yes it’s ridiculous that in 12 years of birding, I still
haven’t seen these – we’re just never in the same place at the same time !!)
Varied Sittella – black-capped form
Elegant Parrot, Rock Parrot
Western Yellow Robin
I might as well ask for an Inland
Dotterel while I’m at it.
All help to add to my life list and reach
that magic 500 would be much appreciated (7 birds to go).
Happy birding to you – I know it makes me happy
