Last night I had a Masked Owl at Little Yabba Creek in the Sunshine Coast
hinterland, at the same spot where I had a pair nesting in 1983. Other good
birds included Crested Shrike-Tit and White-eared Monarch.
I commented recently on the decline of some species in some parts of
southeast Queensland - for instance, Crimson Rosellas and Satin Bowerbirds
were once numerous in the lowland rainforest remnants of the Sunshine Coast
hinterland, but are now scarce. Yesterday I saw a pair of Crimson Rosellas
at Little Yabba Creek, the first I have seen there in several years, but
again no Satin Bowerbirds. A check of my records show both species were
commonly recorded here in the 1970s and 1980s.
