I like to thank everyone who replied to my query below.


A species I did not mention below is the Hall’s Babbler. If anyone know of good sites to see them around Bourke please let me know.


As we will only be out a few days a trip, we do not have time to go into QLD to Cunumulla which from what I have heard is a reliable site for them.

RFI Cobar and Central NSW


David Mitford and I are planning to have a look around Cobar in central NSW next month for a few days. David hopes to see a few new birds but I do not expect to see anything new myself though a Grey Falcon would be a nice sight.


Does anyone know of good birding sights around Cobar or Central NSW and to see some interesting species such as:


Grey Falcon - has anyone seen any Grey Falcon’s in Central NSW lately besides the Lake Cargelligo birds?


Chestnut-breasted Quail-thrush


White-browed Tree-creeper


Chestnut-crowned Babbler (I recall seeing them myself somewhere between Willcania and Cobar in the late 90’s but wondering if there are some close spots to Cobar for seeing them)


Grey-fronted Honeyeater


Black Honeyeater


Striated Grasswren - does anyone have directions to see the Striated Grasswrens in Yathong NR and how to get to Yathong NR?
