There were 2 male Gilbert's Whistlers at Burrendong Arboretum this past weekend.
68 species were recorded for the weekend. It was relatively quite birdwise as the breeding season seems to be winding down though Rufous Songlarks and Rufous Whistlers were still very vocal. Lots of Peaceful Doves with one very small flimsy nest with 2 eggs located, White-browed and one group of Grey -crowned Babblers, Diamond Firetails, Spiny-cheeked Honeyeaters and Brown Treecreepers. There is a healthy population of Speckled Warblers and are usually quite easy to find.
Burrendong Arboretum is located 25kms from Wellington overlooking Lake Burrendong in central-western NSW.
Burrendong Arboretum, a Botanic Garden of native plants, has one of the largest collections of Australian plants in cultivation. There are some native plants flowering at all times of the year but late winter to early summer the Arboretum explodes into colour as the Hakeas, Grevilleas and Wattles are in bloom.
