Wamboin White Gum Forest Reserve

Sun 28 November 2021 08:00am

David McDonald

Description: This will be COG’s first visit to this interesting area on the NSW side of the border, abutting the Kowen pine forest. It is a Brittle Gum forest with tracks built in recent years for the Kowen Trail Runners. The birds are typical of the Southern Highlands Brittle Gum/Red Stringybark Forest ecosystem: not prolific, but nonetheless interesting. Painted Button-quail have been observed in similar habitat nearby.
