Birdline Tasmania

Published sightings for the week ending 6 Jan 2013.

Sun 6 Jan Baillon's Crake Goulds Lagoon, Granton
Baillon's Crake (2) One adult observed from the hide. Second bird seen at the northern end of the eastern part of the lagoon. Bumped into Rodger Willows just before we sighted this bird and it exhibited the same posture he reported previously on Birdline, whereby the bird holds its tail horizontal and does not flick it at all (that we saw).
