highlightFlock Bronzewing, Bourke’s Parrot,
Toona Gate, Sturt NP Tibooburra NSW
We visited the North-west NSW from Wilcannia through White Cliffs to Broken Hill up to Tibooburra and Cameron’s Corner then on to Bourke. The Flock Bronzewing were seen on private property just outside Sturt NP beside Toona Gate. Permission is required for this property; the resident is very approachable. A single bird followed by six and then another three in the morning coming into drink. The following afternoon the Bronzewings were again seen coming into drink. South of the Toona gate inside the NP there was a family of Bourke’s parrots amongst them were two very young ones. Checklists on eBrid. eBird checklist

Sat 11Royal Spoonbill
Tamar Island Wetlands
Is this an unusual sighting? Spoonbills are not listed in my book of Tasmanian Birds. [Moderator's note: Royal Spoonbills have been a resident in some locations in Tasmania for over a decade, and have breed more recently, but are still uncommon in the state in general.]
