Thanks to everyone who sent me advice on places to go birding between 
Canberra and Dubbo (NSW).

We had lunch on the way up from Canberra at Gum Swamp (Forbes) - 3 Glossy 
Ibis, 40 Whiskered Terns plus usual waterfowl. Spent all day Monday at 
Western Plains Zoo - many wild birds including Black Kite, Yellow-throated 
and Noisy Miner, Blue-faced and Spiny-cheeked Honeyeater, Apostlebird, 
White-browed Babbler, Red-capped Robin, Peaceful Dove, Pied Butcherbird, 
etc and a Goanna. I spent Sunday and Monday afternoons in Goonoo SF to the 
north at Paddy's Dam (Spiny-cheeked Honeyeater, Mallee Ringnecks) and at a 
dam on Mogriguy Forest Rd (Striped Honeyeater, Little Friarbirds, Mallee 
Ringnecks) among rusting car wrecks. Around Mogriguy saw plenty of Blue 
Bonnets, an Emu and Inland Thornbills and at Tabralgar 3 Black Kites. I 
wish I had more time to explore Goonoo as its an amazing place.
