Apostlebird 28/12/08 Anstead Bushland Reserve - SEQ A. Crawford 5
birds near lookout above quarry
I notice on the Birds Queensland website that 5 Apostlebirds were
recorded at the Anstead Bushland ( in Brisbanes west) reserve by A
This would appear to me to be an extremely rare occurence or perhaps
even a first record for Brisbane?
I have been unable to find any reference to Apostlebirds being found
in the Brisbane area historically?
Certainly normally a bird found west of the divide.
Perhaps I'm wrong though and they have been recorded previously.
Would any members have any feedback? I keep a checklist of birds
recorded in the Brisbane area on my website and will be adding
Apostlebird, and so keen for feedback on its paucity.
