Greetings fellow birders.
The kind people on this list have been most generous to me in the past
with their knowledge of some of Australia's more difficult birds.
Well, I'm on the scrounge again ! I,( well, three of us actually) will
be birding in Australia in late Sept./Oct. this year and have been
using the excellent eBird Australia to help us locate species we
would like to see. Two of the ones we want in the NT seem to be
sparse and irregular , at least according to that site, even though
they should be fairly easy ( according to the books anyway!). Does
anyone have any reasonably reliable sites for Silver-backed
Butcherbird and Yellow-tinted Honeyeater? We are basically doing Mt.
Isa to Birdsville ( via Winton ...I'll check out the sewage ponds !)
and then Darwin/Kakadu/across to Vict. River and Timber Creek. We are
also hoping to have a look for Rufous Scrub-bird in the
Barrington/Gloucester Tops area ( we'll stay at Gloucester for
that)....but there don't seem to be many recent reports...at least
not with directions.So any help on these 3 species would be most
gratefully received...please reply privately to me if you don't
want to bore your resident birders!!
Many Thanks, John Hopkins.
