Hi everyone,

On Sunday, saw a pair of Brolgas 10km south of Kerang in a paddock. Apparently this is a resident pair that return every summer to breed.

Interestingly, I was talking to a local yesterday about these birds and he remembers his father (now long gone) seeing literally hundreds of Brolgas in the fields around Kerang (back in the 1920's-30's).

Sadly they now seem to be quite rare in this area. Does anyone know the status of this species in Victoria? It is listed as uncommon to scarce (in the South-east) in a couple of field guides,
