311 Final Count for NT 2013

After an inability to find some common species in the area, such as Cicada Bird and Feral Rock Dove, I was lucky enough to embark on a last ditch effort out Timber Creek way with Experience the Wild's Mike Jarvis.

A hot but enjoyable time saw us catch the elusive Chestnut-backed Buttonquail at a little site 40km along the Victoria Highway on the 28th of December....Hooray

A couple of days earlier, I caught up with David Webb out at Fogg Dam and an early showing of an Oriental Reed Warbler.  (I havent seen it since, so am feeling lucky)

Anyway  Final result is 311 Species seen in the Northern Territory and an increase to 338 NT life species seen from about 323 at the beginning of the year.

Good Birding
