Margaret, Charles and I all agreed the snake seen on that original outing was a highland copperhead

Not that you have to count it with the avian fauna.


Saw 4 Brown Falcons and 2 Wedge tailed Eagles between Cowra and Canowindra yesterday and 2 Brown Falcons before between Cowra and Boorowa.  It is good to see some of this country looking green.

Those that attended the Hospital Creek outing late last year may be interested to know that I returned to this site exactly three months after our visit, on Saturday 3 March, 2007.

I did an area survey within 500m of the hut, in the early morning, and recorded a total of 32 species.  The most abundant species was the Fuscous Honeyeater and there were also good numbers of White-naped Honeyeater and quite a few White-eared Honeyeater and Yellow-faced Honeyeater.  There were also quite a lot of Scarlet Robin, including many immature.  I also saw both White-throated Treecreeper and Red-browed Treecreeper, a single Fan-tailed Cuckoo and Olive-backed Oriole.  Overhead were a small flock of White-throated Needletail.

If anyone knows the COG grid cell that this site belongs to could they please email me offline.  Thank you.

In other sightings within Canberra, I saw a flock of 10 Rainbow Bee-eater over Lake Tuggeranong, and in the trees between the college and the skate park, on Sunday 4 March,  and 2 Brown Quail yesterday in the grassland between Kambah and Fisher, next to the bike path that runs parallel to the Tuggeranong Parkway.
