Replying to Matthew Herring's query: Has anyone out there seen good numbers in QLD recently?
I counted 72 up at Mary Farms near Mt. Carbine, Far North Queensland on January 15 1999, which are the biggest aggregations I've seen. There were 27 including a small juvenile and two half grown birds along the East Mary Road, a single by the main road to Carbine and then 42 along the West Mary Road.
We often get double figures here, depending on time of day and height of the grass, and they still breed successfully with juveniles there in October 2000.
