12/04/23 Bird & Frog survey: Yellingbo

Notes from: a Friends of the Helmeted Honeyeater hosted citizen science event.
The weather seemed against us, but after a couple of early showers the skies cleared and the expected wind didn't arrive. A great day to be outside! With the help of 18 sets of eyes and ears, we walked through some beautiful bushland areas in Yellingbo Nature Conservation Area and recorded 31 species of birds, including White-naped & Yellow-faced Honeyeaters foraging for insects, the distinctive calls of Fan-tailed Cuckoos & Eastern Whipbirds, a Black-faced Cuckoo Shrike and more! The Southern Brown Tree Frogs were calling loudly, loving the damp conditions. With the keen eyes of some of our teen participants, we spotted a couple basking on the track. We all got a good look at these fabulous animals, recorded their calls and then left them alone whilst we enjoyed lunch and great conversation. The data we collect is uploaded to shared databases (iNat, Birdata, FrogID or FeralScan), helping us, agencies and researchers alike understand more about this important Conservation Area. Thank you for your help everyone :)
