Hi all,

Stuart Warren and I made an attempt for the recently reported Painted
Honeyeaters near Jondaryan yesterday (and dipped), however a nice
consolation prize was a small party of White-winged Fairy-wrens on a small
dirt road between Oakey and Jondaryan.  According to the Atlas of Australian
Birds this may be the eastern-most record of the species, though one dot on
the map exists near Amiens, west of Stanthorpe that may be equal depending
on where in the grid it falls.  There are no records listed in Atlas from
the Oakey area at all.

I'd be keen to hear from anyone who has seen WWFW in this area before, or if
you haven't reported a sighting from this far east before.  The exact
location can be found at: -
the pin is on the right little dirt road, but probably not in exactly the
right spot.  There is a description on the page to help you find the right
