Fri 22 Feb Malleefowl Ouyen-Patchewollock Rd, Victoria
The Malleefowl are still coming out in numbers. I saw 31 on Fri morning, with 13 in one group. Thanks Margaret Alcorn and others for good suggestions on the Melbourne Birdlife spotlighting trip last weekend to contact the Mildura Birdlife group for more info. I also came across a Malleefowl just off the Nowingi Track in Hattah.
