Birdline North Queensland

Published sightings for the week ending 29 Dec 2013.

Sat 28 Dec      Yellow-billed Kingfisher Kingfisher Park Birdwatchers Lodge
Bird seen and photographed along Bushy Creek on 28/12/2013, which forms one 
boundary of the Lodge. The bird is a female. This represents a considerable 
extension to its normal range on Cape York Peninsula which extends south to the 
lower reaches of the McIlwraith Range, south east of Coen. There have been 
unconfirmed records in past years as far south as Eubenangee Swamp, north of 
Innisfail Far North Queensland. (Moderator, Keith Fisher, Note:- I have seen 
images, which were taken by one of the guests at the Lodge this afternoon. Two 
others also saw this bird. I'll post an image when I get it).

Thu 26 Dec      Emu Woodstock 10' Cell
Drove down Quigley Road to see if there was any water. Surprised to see male 
Emu with three well developed chicks. Male and one chick outside fence and two 
chicks on inside of property fence - mango orchard. Water at end of road. Emus 
have been recorded and bred in drought years at a large dam on private property 
near Major Creek. This sighting is within 3 kms of that dam.
