  • Spotted Whistling-Duck at Mission Beach State School (Backyard Wetland) reported by Len and Chris Ezzy on 16-09-2018
    37 x Spotted Whistling-Ducks on the "Backyard Wetland" today at 11:30a.m. (Yesterday afternoon we could find only 3 individual birds there.) Most of today's birds were found roosting on exposed fallen timber in the middle of the main wetland lagoon, but others were just sitting on the water in a couple of groups. We also found 2 individuals roosting high in a riparian paperbark tree beside a hollow. (This is a continuing sighting from earlier Birdline North Queensland reports by Darren Page & Antje Kuechler 5/9/2018 #235308 and Ruth Wilson 9/9/2018 #235354.)
