Great Egret, Nankeen Night Heron, Painted Button-quail, Glossy Black-Cockatoo and Horsfield's Bushlark, found in Bundanoon over January and early February, have raised the number of birds I've spotted in town to 150. I'm stoked. Basing this on numbers of birds regularly seen in Australia (799), according to a Birdlife rep, my hometown has 18% of Australia's birds. Not bad for about eight square kilometres! This is to be celebrated. LJ, February 7 2013.
