Eremaea Birdlines
Interesting and unusual bird observations
Birdline Central & Southern Queensland

Birdline Central & Southern 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 BSCQ region covers a large area from south of Ayr to the New South Wales Border and west to the Northern Territory border.

Birdline Central & Southern Queensland is supported by BirdLife Southern Queensland and moderated by Andy Jensen, Dezmond Wells, Rob Morris and Sandra Gallienne.

We support ethical birding .

Moderators' Note

The Moderators have adopted a 2 tier sightings system. All legitimate reports will be published,with some sightings which the Moderators consider to be unusual for rarity, distribution or timing being published as 'Highlights' on this page. The following link will appear after sighting submissions which contains information about the species of interest plus the Unusual Record Report Form to be completed and submitted for relevant sightings: http://www.tonypalliser.com/barc. Reports that do not meet the reporting criteria will not be published and we encourage all individuals to submit lists to ensure their sightings are included. We encourage any one with a long list of species to enter them into eBird Australia. The Atlas and list entry components of Eremaea Birds moved to a new site called eBird Australia on 1st February 2014. Birdlines will remain here. In the meantime for entering all your lists register with eBird at www.ebird.org.

Thu 4Eastern Osprey
Riverton Qld
While working in the paddock on my farm, I observed an osprey flying between 10 and 20 metres off the ground. We were able to get a good look at the bird as it passed close to our vehicle. We were surprised to see this species so far from the coast, as we live in the western foothills of the dividing range, approximately 200km from the nearest point of coastline.
