Two sightings worth reporting from a recent trip to SW Queensland,
NW NSW and the Strzelecki Track.
About 22 km from the Moomba turn-off towards Innaminka on the
Strzelecki Track, there's a large pull-off area which is probably
used by overnight campers, with quite a few substantial trees. There
were six Letter-winged Kites roosting here.
At Cameron Corner, a pair of Grey Falcons flew over the roadhouse
from Queensland into South Australia, but missed NSW by about 100
Some other good birds on the trip were Bourke's Parrot (three
times), Chestnut-breasted Quail-thrush at Bowra, more than 20
Cinnamon Quail-thrushes, and Banded Whiteface at two locations in
the Strzelecki and Merty Merty areas. But don't ask about grasswrens
- many fruitless hours were wasted trekking over sand dunes and
through lignum swamps. I've tried for nine, and seen three. Anyone
got any tips on how to see them?
