19/04/24 Bird & Frog survey: Yellingbo

Notes from: a Friends of the Helmeted Honeyeater hosted citizen science event.
It was a calm, 12.4 deg C morning as 10 of our Citizen Science Bird & Frog survey team hit the tracks of Yellingbo Nature Conservation Area, recording 36 species of birds (Brian declared the Black-shouldered Kite the highlight, and it's always fabulous to hear the raucous Laughing Kookaburra). We saw 1 species of frog (Striped Marsh Frog) and heard 2 others (Eastern Smooth Froglet & Common Eastern Froglet), a Swamp Wallaby looked on peacefully as we walked by, and there was some interesting fungi! The summer bird visitors appear to have mostly left for their migration north, leaving our resident birds to enjoy the YNCA bush.
Two new people came along, and 1 person was back for their 2nd time, amongst the regulars - they all said they'd be back - brilliant!
The Manna Gums looked majestic against the blue skies and the conversation came easily as we shared time with like-minded people. Huge thanks to Brian for taking notes of the species we saw 🙂
