Eremaea Birdlines
Interesting and unusual bird observations
Birdline Central & Southern Queensland

Birdline Central & Southern Queensland is a site for the reporting of rare or unusual birds outside their normal range, unusually high or low numbers, early or late arrivals or departures for migrant species and interesting behaviour or unusual habitat usage. The BSCQ region covers a large area from south of Ayr to the New South Wales Border and west to the Northern Territory border.

Birdline Central & Southern Queensland is supported by BirdLife Southern Queensland and moderated by Andy Jensen, Dezmond Wells, Rob Morris and Sandra Gallienne.

We support ethical birding .


Moderators' Note

The Moderators have adopted a 2 tier sightings system. All legitimate reports will be published,with some sightings which the Moderators consider to be unusual for rarity, distribution or timing being published as 'Highlights' on this page. The following link will appear after sighting submissions which contains information about the species of interest plus the Unusual Record Report Form to be completed and submitted for relevant sightings: Reports that do not meet the reporting criteria will not be published and we encourage all individuals to submit lists to ensure their sightings are included. We encourage any one with a long list of species to enter them into eBird Australia. The Atlas and list entry components of Eremaea Birds moved to a new site called eBird Australia on 1st February 2014. Birdlines will remain here. In the meantime for entering all your lists register with eBird at

Fri 19Eclectus Parrot female
Friends invited us over to view a strange bird in their backyard, it was a healthy looking female Eclectus Parrot. More than likely an escape. They have been recorded on the Gold Coast before. Exact address with-held, for obvious reasons.

Mon 24Swift Parrot & Regent Honey Eater.
Picnic Point Lookout & Highfields falls track Toowoomba.
Observed with many other birders, thanks to all for your help and information. Swift Parrot was new lifer for us. Swift Parrot was feeding with lorikeets and little lorikeets in yellow box gums. Very high up in trees. Lots of sore necks today I can imagine.?? Regent was also feeding and calling and being harrased by lewins honeyeaters. Our first regent seen in Qld.
