A Pacific Baza was also recently seen during the visit of Pat and Kath from the Toowoomba Bird Observers when they compiled a bird list for the reserve in January.
Along with the Pacific Baza, many other birds were witnessed during the short walk through the reserve and some of the ones seen are captured in these photos below including a juvenile Laughing Kookaburra and a Juvenile Pheasant Coucal and some cheeky Rainbow Lorikeets checking out a hollow in a large gum tree.
I would like to encourage any birders to submit their bird sightings and observations from their visits to the Charles and Motee Rogers Bushland Reserve to the Eremaea eBird website for recording. This site is managed by Birdlife Australia and can be found at: http://ebird.org/content/australia/ and is a great resource for collecting data on what birds live in the area.

UPDATE: There are less than 6 days left to save this bushland reserve please help by finding out more here: What can we do to help?
