Eremaea Birdlines
Interesting and unusual bird observations
Birdline North Queensland

Birdline North 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 coverage for the Birdline North Queensland site is from Bowen west to the Northern Territory border and north to the tip of Cape York Peninsula and includes all the offshore islands. We encourage any one with a long list of species to enter them into Eremaea eBird.

Birdline North Queensland is supported by BirdLife Northern Queensland and BirdLife Townsville and moderated by Len & Chris Ezzy and Peter Valentine.

We support ethical birding .

Tinaroo Falls
Initially seen from southern side of dam, skulking on rocks along lakes edge about 100mts east of the northern side of the dam wall. We drove over to the northern side and got some pics of it on the rocks and as it flew away and landed 500mts further to the NE. A white morph with grey bill and distinctive yellow legs. Unusual for the area, very few eBird Tableland records, but not listed as 'rare' in eBird. More pics on the checklist. eBird checklist
