Giday birders, I escaped Sydney with long time birding companion Matthew Stanton over the APEC weekend (6th to 9th September 2007). Our aim was to head to Round Hill Nature Reserve, central NSW with Red Lored Whistler (RLW) being our main target. After Round hill we headed north to several other State Forests and Nature reserves

Brolga 2 including one bird that looked like a juv, at a wetland just west of Condobolin.

The Wheat Paddock
Southern Scrub Robin, Gilberts whistler, Shy Heathwren, Yellow Plumed Honeyeater, Chestnut Quail-thrush, Horsfields Bronze Cuckoos were abundant, Spotted nightjar (heard), Yellow-rumped Pardalote.

Other birds for Nombinne NR
Black eared Cuckoo, Grey Fronted Honeyeater, Splendid Wren, Pink Cockatoo, Mulga Parrot.

Mt Hope, Spotted Bowerbird

Near Quanda NR (west of Nyngan)
Superb parrots, several groups of up to 12 individuals, Pink Cockatoo, Blue Bonnet,

We couldn't find any RLW at the wheat Paddock, though possibly heard them once. The Gilberts whistlers tried very heard to pretend to be RLWs by doing a slow call, but would soon revert to a more normal, faster call.
