Hi Birders,
Ralph Read enquired as to where he could find Yellow-rumped Thornbills in the Greater Sydney Region.
According to the bible, ie The Birds of Sydney 1991 by Ernie Hoskin, Yellow-rumped Thornbills, although a declining species as the rural areas gradually become urbanised, they still can be found in Centennial Park in Sydney's east. Normally they are associated with pastures and extensive mown gardens, as in houses on acreages, that have a bushland fringe. Here on the Central Coast just north of Sydney, they are reasonably common around the shores of Tuggerah Lakes in mown picnic areas that have fringing Casuarinas or Eucalypts. Two good places to see them are Picnic Point Reserve, The Entrance and Lions Park, Berkeley Vale. They also are reasonably common at mangrove mountain on the farmland there. I would expect that Western Sydney Regional Park at Fairfield, and
Rouse Hill Regional Park would also have resident group.
