Hi Birders.

Brown Quail are resident in the Red Centre, albeit in small numbers in dry 
years. They have been recorded every year in the annual 24hr Twitchathon which 
has been held in dry years as well as wet. I find the best places to look for 
them in dry times are in rank grasses in and around coolibah swamps. Stubble 
Quail seem to be another story, only appearing after significant rains and 
departing as soon as the good times are over.
Incidentally, this year's Red Centre 24hr Twitchathon will be held on Friday 
the 7th to Saturday 8th October. There will be information on how to take part 
on the Alice Springs Desert Park website very soon...
