Birdsville birding trip, August 2019

Male Cinnamon Quail-thrush (Cinclosoma cinnamomeum)

From mid to late-August 2019 four of us travelled to Birdsville as we had been told that conditions were very favourable, rains earlier in the year had passed through the region on it’s way to Lake Eyre. We visited Quilpie, Windorah, Birdsville, Koonchera (SA), Bowra Sanctuary and Bollon.

These are images and clips of some of the species seen.
