The following is a digest of Sightings Reported on Birdpedia for the period 
Monday, April 16, 2012 to Sunday, April 22, 2012:

Area: SA

Date: Sunday, April 15, 2012

Location: On a private property on Ferries McDonald Road, Monarto

Malleefowl (Leipoa ocellata) (1) No bird, but an active double mound was found 
during the 2012 Malleefowl survey at Monarto. The two mounds had a boundary in 
common, the larger one (similar size to the mound found at Calperum over 
Easter) was full of litter, the smaller one scraped clean, and footprints were 
abundant. It was right at the edge of the mallee area, with mostly native pine 
trees on one side and Acacia euthycarpa on the other, and next to a stony area.
Earlier in the day an old inactive mound was found on another property, and 
several sets of footprints kept the group encouraged as we fought our way 
through, at times, dense prickly scrub.

Location: Chauncey's Line Road, Monarto South

Malleefowl (Leipoa ocellata) (1) One bird seen crossing Chauncey's Line Road 
(see photo), Monarto South, just west of the current extensive roadworks to 
build a B-double truck highway through and alongside Ferries McDonald 
Conservation Park. On a Sunday, roadworks are at a standstill. One bird has 
already been found dead near where this one was this morning.
