We are on a trip through Central NSW to Qld and stopped at about 4.00 p.m.
yesterday at Gunns Swamp just south of Forbes in NSW.
Highlights were perhaps 20 Pink-eared Ducks and at least 6 Freckled Ducks.

Also of note was the abundance, maybe 200, Feral Pigeons occupying most of
the dead trees across the water.  I remember visiting here about 5 years ago
and seeing the same trees literally dripping with Cormorants, Darters, Ducks
and Egrets.  This time we saw only a single Cormorant, no Darters and no

Is anyone else aware of whether this is a total "taking over" by the pigeons
or is the abundance of one and absence of the others just a coincidence??
