05/07/23 Bird & Frog survey: Yellingbo

Notes from: a Friends of the Helmeted Honeyeater hosted citizen science event.
Fifteen of us walked a track with Woori Yallock Creek on one side and a series of swampland on the either, with sections of open farmland. The ground was damp underfoot and the air was still, but cool, so we were a little surprised that we saw 44 bird species - more than we imagined we'd see today - and barely heard a frog! Highlights were a group of Varied Sittella's, a white morph of the Brown Goshawk, hearing an Australian Raven (not often seen here) and 27 Superb Fairy Wrens! The joy of citizen science mornings is that everyone can contribute, no matter their age or knowledge. It's school holidays, and great to have some keen young birders with us today, and their mum encouraging their interest. A great team effort, with a couple of bird species we rarely see. The frogs? We barely heard them today - too cool it was suggested - with just a lone Common Eastern Froglet calling!
