We hope the following is of interest to members on this site. Please feel free 
to contact us for more details. Sorry for the length but we wanted this to be 
useful for other birders.
Dec 2016/ Jan 2017

On December 27. Scott Baker, Kevin Bartram and myself began a road trip to 
target specific bird species that we all wanted to see and photograph.
We left Melbourne early on Dec 27 and headed for our first overnight stop, 
which was Bourke in NSW. Although we had very little time for birding we did 
see species such as Spotted Harrier, Greater Blue Bonnets and Red-winged 
parrots along the way. We travelled over 1000 km’s on the first day.
The next day, Dec 28, we were up early again and travelled most of the day 
before staying in a beautiful and friendly country hotel at Ilfracombe, about 
20 km’s south of Longreach.  Again, there was very little time for birding but 
we did see species such as Square-tailed Kite, Brolga’s and Australian Bustard 
in our travels and some reptiles on the road such as Sand Goanna. But more 
exciting was the finding of about 20 Plum-headed Finch, 6 km’s south of Tambo, 
which gave Scott a ‘lifer’! It was another 1000 km leg part of the journey but 
we spent most of this time talking about birds, cricket and footy!
On Dec 29, we began the last 600 km’s to our destination, which was Mt.Isa. On 
the way, we encountered and photographed a Spencer’s Monitor, which is a 
reptile of significance, just south of Winton. We also came across a 
Channel-billed cuckoo, which was a surprise to us in this part of outback 
Australia. Also on this leg of the journey, we were very pleased to see how 
lush the landscape was and we came across thousands of Woodswallows including, 
Masked, White-browed, Black-faced and White-breasted feeding along the road. We 
also saw many Australian Pratincoles, Cockatiels, Budgies and more bustards.
On arriving at Mt.Isa, we immediately made our way to Mica Creek (about 12 km’s 
south of Mount Isa) for our first target, which was the Kalkadoon Grasswren, 
which would be a ‘lifer’ for all of us! We had a number of sites researched and 
Scott and I had been there before so we thought this was a good starting point. 
We found a number of Spinifex pigeon here which was to become a bird we 
constantly came across over the next few days and were surprised at how common 
they were!
We arrived about 3pm and decided to spread out along the range which the 
species is often reported from. After about 1 hour, I was lucky to hear them 
call in a small gully. Upon following the call, two birds presented very well 
and I managed some great shots of these. I immediately called Scott and Kevin 
over but we could not relocate the birds.
Next morning, we decided to head back to this spot and it was not long when 
Scott found two birds again, but almost at the top of the ridge, and he and Kev 
were able to get some great shots! WOW! Our first target achieved and we were 
all happy with our photos. But be warned, walking over this terrain is VERY 
demanding and one needs a fair level of fitness and water to venture up these 
ridges! Just ask Kev! At this site, we also had Eastern Koel, Red-backed 
Kingfisher and a number of cuckoo’s, honeyeaters such as Rufous throated, grey 
headed and Silver-crowned Friarbird
With The KG in the bag, we decided to head out to the north west of Mt.Isa for 
the famous Carpentarian Grasswren site on McNamara Road. The road is completely 
sealed now and mine activities suspended so it was a pleasant journey up to the 
rock cairn at the 8 km mark. In the rock cairn contains a container which as a 
notebook for people to record their sightings on. We had a quick look at this 
and the notes pointed to the area that Scott and I had seen them in April of 
this year. It did not take too long for Scott to locate 2 birds and he managed 
fantastic photos. My photos were blurred due to the spinifex catching my focus. 
Also at this site, we had birds such as Little Woodswallow, Black-tailed 
Treecreeper and Varied Lorikeet.
As it was extremely hot, we decided to head back to Mt.Isa for the night. On 
the way back, we stopped at Lake Moondara where we located terrific birds such 
as Golden-backed Honeyeater(Black-chinned), Paperbark Flycatcher and Glossy 
ibis. Kev thought he had heard an Arafura Fantail but we failed to confirm with 
a sighting.
The following day, we returned to the site where again Scott located 3 birds 
and Scott, Kev and I were able to pick up very good photos of these birds. WOW! 
Although I had seen this species before, it became a major photo tick for me so 
I was extremely happy!  After this excitement, we decided to celebrate with a 
big breakfast back in Mt. Isa before making our way east to our next target, 
which was the Eungella Honeyeater. We made it to Hughenden that evening to 
celebrate New Year’s Eve and Kev’s impending 60th birthday next day! Along the 
highway, we had a short stop to photograph a large number of Australian 
Pratincoles drinking on a puddle of the side of the road.
Next morning, we began the journey to Eungella and on the way, we had some 
fantastic views and photo opportunities in a number of small townships of 
Dollarbird, Squatter Pigeon and Red-backed Kingfisher. We all agreed that these 
we the best photos we have taken of these species! We arrived in Eungella about 
6pm after picking up supplies and set up camp at Broken River. That night, 
Scott and Kev went out spotlighting and had an amazing night, finding a 
Small-eyed Snake, a number and variety of interesting frogs and a number of 
gecko’s including the Pepper-bellied Broad tailed Gecko and a type of velvet 
gecko(Oedura monoli).
Early next morning, we headed off to locate the Eungella Honeyeater sites that 
are identified in the Tim Dolby/Rohan Clarke book. We immediately got onto a 
couple of birds at the first site in the book but the weather conditions were 
extremely poor including rain, mist and fog. We decided to check out the nearby 
site at the junction of Snake Rd and after about an hour, we found a number of 
birds low down which gave us great views! YAHOO! This was my last honeyeater to 
photograph in Australia so I was thrilled! This was a lifer for Scott too and a 
new photo tick for Kev!
After celebrating with a breakfast at the local café in Eungella, we bumped 
into a local who gave us some great information about where to find quail. We 
took his advice and after photographing Painted Button-quail on his property in 
town, he suggested we head down to the local football ground. In the next hour, 
I can only describe this as one of the most enjoyable birding experiences I 
have ever encountered! On this small oval, we immediately located a number of 
red-backed Button Quail and managed some great shots! We also located Brown 
Quail and most excitingly, we flushed two male King quail! The oval is tiny and 
everywhere we walked we continued to flush quail!
We have since learnt that this phenomenon has been previously been recorded and 
we were lucky enough to stumble across it in our short time there!  WOW! 
Eungella was also good for Topknot pigeon, Woompoo, Rose-crowned and Superb 
Fruit Dove, Black-faced Monarch and we encountered these often. At about 
midday, we decided to pack up camp and head to Rockhampton in order to prepare 
our search for the Yellow Chat at the Port Alma site the following day.
An early morning visit to Part Alma Rd just south of Rockhampton failed to 
produce any sightings of Yellow Chat but we did see a number of Zitting 
Cisticola’s on the road and a pair of Cotton Pygmy geese on a small pond at the 
start of the road as well as a number of Comb-crested Jacana’s. We then checked 
out another site closeby(12 Mile Rd) and although we did not see any chats, 
Scott had great views of a Red-chested Button-Quail he flushed in a paddock.
The following morning, we had another quick look for the Yellow Chat at Port 
Alma Rd and the other site where Scott had seen the Red-chested Button Quail 
the day before. No luck again with the chat so we conceded this as our first 
dip of the trip. We went back to where Scott had flushed the quail and we were 
able to flush one bird that Kev and Scott saw well. It did not get a 
satisfactory view so I did not count this on my list. Soon after this, we were 
back on the road to make our way south to Inskip Point. On the way, we passed 
through a town called Childers and Scott saw a Square-tailed Kite fly across 
the road where it landed in a tree very low down. We immediately stopped and 
photographed this raptor which had two pigeon fledglings in its talons. We all 
agreed that this was the best views of the kite that any of us had ever seen! 
On arriving at Inskip Point mid-afternoon, we began our search for the 
Black-breasted Button Quail although we had all seen it before. I photographed 
it easily a couple of years ago at this spot but recent reports had suggested 
that it was becoming increasingly difficult to find this bird at this location. 
After a couple of hours search, we had no luck but found some other great birds 
such as 3 Beach Stone Curlews, White-cheeked Honeyeaters, Variegated Fairy 
wren, Varied Triller, Fairy Gerygone and a large number of terns such as Little 
and Common. We stayed in Gympie that night.
Next day, we made our way to the Conondale National Park where we wanted to 
camp the night I the hope of doing some spotlighting that night.  We stopped 
for breakfast at Kenilworth where we had great views of White-headed pigeon 
feeding around the township. We spent some time at the Charlie Moreland 
campground where we had a number of Noisy Pitta’s calling. We set up at camp at 
the Booloumba Campground. Before dinner, Scott found a cave with Common 
Bent-wing and Eastern Horseshoe bats. That night we went spotlighting where we 
found a number of different frog species, a Marbled Frogmouth and some 
fantastic mammals back at the Charlie Moreland campground which included 
Red-necked Pademelon and Long-nosed Bandicoot. Unfortunately no Masked Owl 
which continues to be a bogey bird for me!
The rain poured heavily on our tents that night which made camping difficult. 
The following day we again headed south to meet up with Tom Tarrant, who took 
us around his patch around Dayboro and Samsonvale.  I was excited to meet Tom 
as I have read many of his trip reports that he has compiled over the years. 
Tom was able to get us onto White Eared Monarch, Grey Goshawk, Azure 
Kingfisher, Kind Quail, Red-backed Buttonquail, Brown Quail and a possible 
Red-chested Buttonquail at Postman’s Track. Thanks Tom for a great day birding! 
That evening we headed back up the highway to Nambour to meet up with local 
birder Greg Roberts who kindly offered to take us out the following morning.
We picked up Greg at 5am and Greg took us to some of his secret locations.  
That morning, we had White-eared Monarch, close-up views of a bushhen, Barred 
Cuckoo Shrike. It was great to meet Greg and we thoroughly enjoyed his company. 
Thank you Greg! Jumping in the car at lunchtime after we dropped Greg off, we 
decided to make a dash down to Ballina in NSW, where a South Island Pied 
Oystercatcher had been reported the previous week. This would be a lifer for 
Kev and Scott so there was a great deal of excitement in the car. We found the 
location about 20 kms south of Ballina at Broadbeach and after a 2 km walk 
along the beach and checking out all the Pied Oystercatchers, we managed to 
locate the SIPO was gave us fantastic views! Scott had arranged to meet up with 
an old friend of his from Ballina who offered us accommodation for the night
We arrived at Scott’s friend house about 8 pm that night and this stay was one 
of the best highlights of the trip for me! We stayed with Kathrina Southwell, 
who is the manager of the organization: Australian Seabird Rescue.
Kath is responsible for caring for injured birds and turtles. It was great to 
have a tour of this facility and the turtles in her care. There were Green 
turtles, Hawksbill and a very large Loggerhead swimming around in a large 
saltwater pool. Kath does an amazing job in rehabilitating sick and injured 
wildlife and it was a real eye-opener as to how many animals are affected by 
our garbage.
After a terrific night staying with Kath, we visited Flat Rock in Ballina to 
search for Wandering Tattl3rs. We were able to find 3 birds pretty easily and 
they allowed very close views. Soon after, we dropped Kev off to the bus 
station as he was heading back to Brisbane Airport for a flight home that 
evening and Scott and I headed south to Werrikimbe NP in search of the Rufous 
Scrub bird. We arrived 6 hours later and set up camp at the Bushy Mountain 
Early next morning, we were able to locate the Rufous Scrub bird exactly at a 
location we had been given. But more excitingly, we both were able to obtain 
pretty good photos of a highly elusive bird. A female jumped onto a log for a 
couple of seconds which gave us our window of opportunity. We were so excited 
with our photos! We packed up camp and were back in the car to travel to our 
next destination, which was Barren Grounds, near Jamberoo, in search of the 
Eastern Ground Parrot. We arrived there early evening and stayed in the 
Jamberoo hotel that night.
Next morning, we spent an hour around the track that the ground parrot his 
frequently seen on. We split up and Scott was able to flush one from the heath 
but I failed to see one. We were anxious to get home so we soon back in the car 
and heading to our final destination, which was Marlo, in search of my bogey 
bird – Masked Owl! After dinner in Marlo, we went out to a number of sites 
where Scott has seen and photographed the birds before.  But it was almost full 
moon, and the sky was well lit, and thus I began to worry about our chances.  
Despite trying all the known sites, we had no joy in finding the Masked Owl 
although we did hear a Sooty Owl in the distance.  In fact, the whole area was 
very silent that night probably due to the moon phase. So the Masked Owl 
remains my bogey bird!
Anyway, it has been very exciting birding adventure over the last couple of 
weeks. We estimate that we travelled in between 8000-9000 km’s, across 3 states 
and back, in very hot conditions, but consider it to be very successful in what 
we wanted to see.
We now begin planning for our next trip, whenever and where ever that may be! I 
hope you enjoyed reading this report!
