G'day Birders,
I've just come back from a trip to SW Qld, NW NSW (trip report coming soon), saw lots of good birds but one that stood out was Painted Finch, what a stunning bird. We saw these at two locations, one of which was in Sturt NP, at the Gorge Lookout. I was rather impressed with this sighting as there is only one record on the NSW NPWS atlas (similar area). However I have heard from John Rawsthorne that there are more Painted Finches near Mt Wood Homestead, also in Sturt NP.

The other location was just west of Coopers Ck, west of Thargomindah. Both of the field guides I had did not show them occurring in this area.
