The Rankins Springs area (100 kms west of West Wyalong) provides great inland birding opportunities: Budgies, Major Mitchell's Cockatoos, Glossy Black-Cockatoos, Black Honeyeaters, Pied Honeyeaters, Painted Honeyeaters, Turquoise Parrots, Crested Bellbirds and... perhaps if you're extremely lucky... a Malleefowl.... just to name a few.
The local community environment group, the Lachlan Fold Wildlife Action Group (LFWAG), now runs the ‘Rankins Springs Birding Weekend’. It will be a fun birding exploration of the local area. No formal bird surveys are planned.
The exact details of the weekend has yet to be finalised, but the usual scenario is:
Last years cost's were: Saturday - all events (bus birding trip, morning/afternoon teas, lunch & evening BBQ - $70 pp). Sunday (birding bus trip - $20 pp)
Accommodation choices at Rankins Springs include the local caravan park, motel & surrounding B&B’s.
To be kept informed with updates on the weekend, please email Helen:
NB: Bus spots will be limited - book early.
It would be great to see you there - you won’t be disappointed.
