Thu 23Plum-headed Finch
Eulah Creek
Although common out in the plains, it has been a while since I have found Plum-headed Finches here at Eulah Creek, in the foothills of the Nandewar Range (20 km east of Narrabri). There was a mob of about 12 birds at about 8, with juveniles amongst them (photo; on the right). They were spooked by an Australian Hobby when I found them. Further information

Sun 26Masked Woodswallow; White-browed Woodswallow; Budgerigar
Tracks around Mount Mulligan Station North of Dimbulah QLD
Several small flocks of mixed birds in several different places around Mt Mulligan Station. We managed to get very good views of all species as they were feeding among the trees. Hot arid parched landscape. Also Black-faced Woodswallows among the mixed flocks. We also saw 15 Budgerigars on the wing and then at rest in a tree. I add these as I saw John Grants post re the Woodswallows

Mon 27highlightShort-tailed Shearwater
northeast carpark, Heatherdale Railway Station
At 6:20 am, I found a dead Short-tailed Shearwater more or less in the middle of the northeast car park at Heatherdale Railway Station - about 22 km ENE of the nearest 'ocean' - Port Phillip Bay at Elwood. I think it had died the previous evening.
