G'day all,

My son John and I have just returned from a couple of weeks birding around
SA. Among the places that we visited was Willow Springs where the
Short-tailed Grasswren is commonly seen. We are glad to report that despite
windy weather we got some reasonable views of this elusive  bird.

While at Willow Springs the managers, Brendan and Carmel Reynolds, mentioned
to me that they did not have a bird list of the area, and would appreciate
help in compiling one for visitors. I would like to be able to help them.
While there I compiled a bird list within a 5km radius of the homestead. I
wonder if others who have visited the area would care to contribute to the
compiling of a bird list too for Willow Springs?

We visited Willow Springs for two nights - basically one day. The bird list
I compiled from that visit is listed below. If any other visitors have seen
additional birds at Willow Springs I would appreciate hearing from you about
them. Any help others could give in compiling this bird list would be
