Hi Bob,

Freckled Duck - the usual spot for them is Lake Lorne in Drysdale, to the
south-west of Melbourne. The lake has little water in it now, and is
overgrown with weed, but there are often small numbers of Freckled Ducks

Cape Barren Goose - Western Treatment Plant, Werribee, near Melbourne.
Alternatively, they are often seen at Serendip Sanctuary near the You Yangs.

Painted Honeyeater - Dunach Nature Reserve, north of Clunes (north of
Ballarat). They were seen a few days ago, so they are around.

Good luck!

Hi all, I'm wrapping up an extended birding trip to Australia (interupted by
some time in New Zealand). I'll have 6 days, travelling from Melbourne to
Sydney via Deniliquin for a Plains Wanderer weekend. So I'll have about 2
days Melbourne to Deniliquin, and two and a half days Deniliquin to Sydney.
So I'd appreciate any advice on getting some targets that I have managed to
miss and that I probably won't get on the PW weeekend and that I dould
conceivably get on the way without too big a detour. They are:  

Freckled Duck (I've tired a lot of places "they were there a couple weeks

Cape Barren Goose

Mallee Fowl (Only if there is some failry sure thing)

Spotless Crake

Little, Painted Buttonquail (I am unable to find buttonquails)

Glossy black Cockatoo

Gang-gang Cockatoo

Powerful owl

Chestnut-rumped Heathwren

Pilotbird (Missed at Barren Grounds, maybe not early enough)

Painted Honeyeater (Backup if missed on PW weekend)



Thanks in advance for any tips.
