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 .

Tue 19highlightPeregrine Falcon
Mt Hypipamee National Park--Crater lookout platform
Pair present (male obviously much smaller), with possible eyrie in wall of The Crater. We first noted a female feeding whilst perched on an Umbrella tree within the Crater. We then noticed the male on a ledge to left and lower than the viewing platform. Both subsequently flew, circling around the Crater and landing in trees within or on the rim of The Crater. The possible eyrie site does not appear to contain eggs or young, so possibly they are prospecting it or using it as a roost site. It looks a touch precarious for a nest. Photo of female by Sam Widin. This is the second eyrie site for Peregrines in the greater Herberton area.
