Birding at Yass Gorge, 14 May

Mother's Day was a great day for birdwatching at Yass Gorge...


On Mother’s Day, we held a very successful Woodland Bird Event. Damon Oliver of the Office of Environment and Heritage led the walk and talked to 28 bird enthusiasts including a number of members of the Canberra Ornithologists Group. After Damon’s talk about what woodland birds are likely to use on the site and why the area is such a good habitat for them, we set off up the Gorge for a spot of birdwatching. Forty bird species were recorded during the walk including little woodland birds such as Superb Fairy-wren, Weebill, several species of Thornbill, Silvereye and waterbirds such as Pacific Black Duck and White-faced Heron.

This was one of the many events being held at Yass Gorge as part of K2C's Being a Good Neighbour to the Bush project working with Friends of Yass Gorge and assisted by the New South Wales Government through its Environmental Trust. Maya Potapowicz
