When I was driving from Victoria to Townsville two weeks ago, I didn't have a lot of time for birding. However, a sign saying "Bird Hide" on the Newell Highway 5 Km south of Forbes attracted my attention. The sign pointed to Gum Swamp, just west of the Highway, where I counted at least 10 Freckled Ducks among the Pink-eared and other species of ducks. There were probably more, as I didn't search very thoroughly. There was also a male Blue-billed Duck. That was on the 28 Feb.

Pleasant interlude on a long drive.
