Hi Ed,
You need to contact Tyto Tony (Tony Ashton) who has a magnificent blog on
the birds of Tyto (search for Tyto Tony on Google blogs). He is a New
Zealander who rides his pushbike around the wetland most mornings - I
usually go and wait for him to turn up. He doesn't believe there have been
any Grass Owls there for years, (despite the publicity at the Visitors'
Centre) and has done terrific work on the Little Bitterns that are resident
there. Scan his blog for what is and isn't likely to be found. His knowledge
of the place is unequalled.

Hi all,
If there are any Tyto Wetland experts out there I'd be really grateful for a
bit of info on some target species that are present/possible.  
I will be visiting the wetlands next weekend with some overseas journalists
as part of a trip to FNQ to follow the routes & app launched by Bird Trails
- Tropical Queensland.
The target species in question are:
White-gaped HoneyeaterCrimson FinchWhite-browed CrakeWhite-browed RobinKing
QuailRed-backed ButtonquailPale-vented Bush-hen Also any info on
spotlighting in the area - especially for Grass Owls, Masked Owls and
Large-tailed Nightjars.
Looking at previous reports from the area I suspect some of the above are
very common and some very tough.
Thanks very much in advance,

Ed WilliamsKingsville VIC
