Last week my first sightings of
Rufous Songlark
White-winged Triller
Sacred Kingfisher
There has been two sightings of Western Gerygone on the Chowilla Floodplain,
NE of Renmark, maybe a first for South Australia ?
Regent Parrots are in full breeding mode and a group of us are doing a
nesting survey which involves a lot of canoeing in the backwaters of River
Murray, so far
20+ nests located, all in dead, flooded Red Gums.
Regent Parrots have never been reported nesting in Black Box, the other
Eucalypt found on the floodplain.
>From my kitchen window I have been watching a pair of Weebills building a
nest in a mallee.
