A small group from the BQ Bowra campout headed further west to Yowah, a small 
opal mining community north of the Bulloo Developmental Road, between Eulo and 
Thargomindah.Most were en-route to a reported Grey Grasswren site approx 100km 
north- west of Noccundra.The country around Yowah is drier and less vegetated 
than around Cunumulla so we didn't expect as many species.There were however 
some highlights, with two Grey Falcon being seen by birders being guided by a 
local birder.(Another Grey Falcon was seen by one of the group about 10km east 
of Eulo Bore).A party of 12+ Halls Babblers and a Peregrine Falcon were easily 
seen at the end of Bluff Rd, at the top of the hill with the Telstra tower.
   Tried the airport hoping for Inland Dotterel,but without success, perhaps 
not far enough west.Parrots were easily seen with lots of Galah, also 
Cockatiel,Ringneck and Blue Bonnet.Grey-headed Honeyeater was the best of the 
honeyeaters,and we located a flock of 12 Sitella. A Chirruping Wedgebill was 
singing its heart out in someone's backyard,as Crested Bellbird 
pan-pan-panelled from across the road.Zebra Finch were omnipresent and we found 
a single Little Grassbird in a bore drain near the airport.

Methinks Dools should head this way if he truely wants a Grey Falcon.
