Given the weather conditions, what I want to know is not what the
brolgas were doing there, but what RICE was doing there?

Hi Martin, Tony and all,

I live close to the Barmah-Millewa Forest and am a frequent visitor but
have never observed Brolga in the forest.

A farmer rang last week with the news that there are six Brolgas in a
rice paddy (possibly the only rice field in the entire region) about
35km to the west of the forest, just north of Bunnaloo (NSW).

Brolgas are often observed some distance to the south of the B-M forest
in Wallenjoe Swamp (which is presently dry) near Corop.
