2013 Birding Targets

Here is a list of the birds I am looking for in 2013:

  • Terek Sandpiper (Xenus cinereus);
  • Roseate Tern (Sterna dougallii);
  • Black-eared Cuckoo (Chalcites osculans);
  • Shining Bronze-Cuckoo (Chalcites lucidus), not sure how I’ve managed to avoid this one;
  • Gilbert’s Whistler (Pachycephala inornata), should be around the site I work at;
  • Malleefowl (Leipoa ocellata), a remote chance near the site I work at;
  • Inland Dotterel (Charadrius australis);
  • Painted Button-quail (Turnix varius);
  • Southern Scrub-robin (Drymodes brunneopygia).
Currently I have no plans for any birding trips so 2013 might be quite a dry year.
