We walked the southern section of the track. Because it was the day before Easter the Euroa caravan park was already very busy, so at first we saw larger birds that are used to people - magpies, magpie-larks, cockatoos and wood ducks. We had excellent views of Blue-faced Honeyeaters and Crimson Rosellas in several places.
As we continued to a quieter part of the track, we started to see and hear some of the smaller birds. We found good numbers of Red-browed Finches and Superb Fairy-wrens in the long grass near the creek. The two highlights were Golden Whistler and Crested Shrike-tit. Thanks Andi Stevenson for the photos:
Next outing is to the Moorngag area, on Thursday 12 May
Good quality roadside vegetation can support a variety of bird species, so we will visit the Moorngag area for some quiet roadside birding. With a bit of luck we may see some Scarlet and Flame Robins which head to lower altitudes for the cooler months.
Please meet in the carpark behind the Seniors Building at 9.30am, bringing any food and drink you need for the morning and binoculars if you have them.
