I recollect reading an account of assorted native birds in very hot weather, either at Hattah or Wyperfeld N.P. The birds included White-winged Choughs, and various other species, large and small. They were sheltering from the extreme heat by burrowing into the heaps of fallen bark and leaf litter at the bases of old trees - just the sort of stuff that gets tidied up by fire-safety conscious park management. If anyone else can recall where this appeared, I would like to know. It may have been in the "Bird Observer" .
