   Star Finch Floodway billabong just out of Paraburdoo
   A healthy population of around 60-70 birds sighted today around/among
   reeds in what water is left on the mostly dried out floodway, quite
   near the mine. Quite a surprise to see, this far inland, and in such
   dry place. Couldn't get a very good shot. [Moderators note (NJ): Star
   Finch are widespread throughout the Pilbara, although are generally
   restricted to dense Typha or Cyperus, near water.]
