Dear birders,

This weekend I'm embarking on a two week road trip from Toowoomba to
Hughenden (~4 hrs inland from Townsville) to visit my Dad, and while I
don't want to put my boyfriend off completely, I am hoping to do a fair
amount of birding in order to find a few species I missed when I did the
same trip five years ago!!

These are Great-billed Heron, Little Bittern, Little, Red-chested and
Red-backed Button-quail, Plains Wanderer, Inland Dotterel, Oriental
Pratincole, Rufous, Lesser Sooty, and Masked Owl, Large-tailed Nightjar,
Rufous-crowned Emu-wren, Striated Grasswren, Grey-fronted,
White-fronted, and Bar-breasted Honeyeater, Yellow Chat, Black-throated,
Star, and Crimson Finch, Spinifexbird, and Yellow White-eye.

The trip will take us north via Biloela (SW of Rockhampton), Mackay, and
Townsville, we'll spend about a week around Hughenden, then a few days
in Longreach and Rolleston (south of Emerald) on our way home.

If anyone has advice on places best to find any of these species, or
even just good birding sites in general I would be very grateful. Thank
