Another successful Bird Observers Club (Victoria) trip on Saturday 20 August to the box-ironbark woodlands around Bailieston (just west of Nagambie, central Victoria). The trip was ably lead by local naturalist Dr Colin Officer from Broadford.
Crested Bellbird (heard), Hooded Robin and Brown Treecreepers were amongst the threatened birds reported in the Coys Diggings area of Bailieston, while along Pontings Lane just south of Bailieston, the group recorded around 3 pairs of Swift Parrots. The area has plenty of wattle in near full colour but little eucalypt flowering and the birds were detected initially by call. Bailieston has had plenty of rain recently and the paddocks were littered with pools of water.
BOCA member Alan Flack will be forwarding the Swift Parrot details onto Birds Australia and the additional sightings will be added to the Atlas shortly.
