Bird survey report – 2019

Thanks to all our volunteer bird survey leaders and spotters. Over 100 species were recorded at 36 sites. A highlight was a solitary Eastern whipbird, its usual habitat the wet forests of the eastern ranges, the shrubby understory of Merri Park providing a home away from home.
Our bird surverys are held quarterly, over 2 Sunday mornings – the next round is in May – keep an eye on our events calendar.
Thanks to Peter Mollison for this wonderful photograph of a male Red-rumped Parrot.
