Thanks Geoffrey for your piece on Parkwood Rd. Your collection of photos from the area in your latest and several earlier messages is certainly most valuable.
I have no doubt that drought conditions will have played a role in influencing bird numbers there. This may especially apply to the Brown Songlark. But a key reason for the abundance of grassland species at Parkwood may be that the area has only a very limited number to no livestock on it, nor is the grass cut for hay. During visits to several rural areas in COG's AoI this spring/summer I have not come across any paddocks that could match those at Parkwood. Most areas are either grazed to overgrazed or used to produce hay. The only sites that may match Parkwood for Bushlarks are some wheat fields near Lake George.
