Laurie Knight asked a question as to whether
Southern Emu-wrens are known to reach the NSW/Qld Border.
In the book "Handlist of Birds in New South Wales"
Morris, McGill & Holmes, 1981 it says of the South Emu-wren:
"Moderately common. Resident. Eggs
Coast, Northern and Central Tablelands. Mainly near
coast and on adjacent plateaux; apparently isolated populations father west
include catchments of the Clarence River (Surface Hill, Cataract River, Koreelah
Range, Woodenbong Creek, Gibralter Range) and Blue Mountains (west to
Bowenfels). Mainly heaths subject to inundation; also tall sedges bordering
marshes and mangroves"
From my 1:250000 Series maps it would appear that
Wodenbong Creek and Koorelah Range adjoin the McPherson Range so that Boonan
Border gate and Wilsons Peak are adjacent to or synomous with Koorelah
Range/Wodenbong Creek as per two of the specific locations mentioned for SEWs in
the NSW Handlist.
