Last November, in respose to the Moorhead's post
on Birding-aus (2/10/05) I went and checked out the site at the TennAPerra
sign and I got several fleeting glimpses of a grey grasswren. We stayed at the
Noccundra Hotel and made a sortie in the early morning. Good sealed road all the
To recap the direction to the sign: travelling
west along the Adventure Highway from Thargomindah after 120k you come to the
turnoff to Noccundra (heading south). Continue along the Adventure Way for 7 k
from this turnoff and you come to another intersection: the Adventure Way
heads west and the Cooper Developmental Road heads north to Eromanga. Continue
along the AW and the Tennaperra sign is precisely 90 k from this intersection.
The bird I saw was about 200 metres down the Tennaperra Road on the left of the
road. Plenty of lignum in the area.
