White-bellied Sea-Eagle at Gowrie Junction

Those species we want to keep hearing about, even if already reported for the year, or the season. They're either rare (e.g. Red Goshawk), localised (e.g. Yellow-throated Miner), cryptic (e.g. owls, button-quail and crakes), unpredictable (e.g. various waterbirds and raptors), or migrants/nomads of local/national interest (e.g. swifts).

White-bellied Sea-Eagle at Gowrie Junction

Post by Mick Atzeni »

A nice record from Gowrie Junction local, Gloria Glass—possibly, a first for that area.

Dear Patrick and Michael

We couldn’t believe our eyes this morning when this raptor appeared above our trees along Gowrie Creek, surrounded by magpies, crows et al, who couldn’t believe it either.

I guess it will be a good one for our various lists?
