23/02/24 Bird & Frog survey: Yellingbo

Notes from: a Friends of the Helmeted Honeyeater hosted citizen science event.
After a hot, windy day yesterday that saw a Total Fire Ban declared, we had a mild, overcast morning for our Bird & Frog survey today, with the temperature guage hovering below 20 deg C all morning. We were quite pleased about that :)
Amongst the 46 species of birds and 1 frog species (Striped Marsh Frog) observed, it was the shared, close-up encounters of Wedge-tailed Eagles, Mistletoe birds and Azure Kingfishers that kept us all spellbound. It was a joy to share this special place with students looking to gain some field skills, local landholders keen to learn more about what species are in their patch and those from further afield who are seeking some time away from the urban environment and in nature. Special thanks to Brian for removing the flowering and seeding ivy climbing a majestic Eucalyptus. We rarely see ivy in YNCA, so great job Brian. Let's keep it out!!
