Leeton Glossy Black Cockatoo Count 18-02-2023
On the Saturday the 18th February we gathered at the gate to Mountain Dam and from there we headed out to our allocated dams, hoping to be in place and settled by 5:00pm. There were other counts conducted in the Narrandera and Cocoparra areas over this and the following weekend
In order to protect the privacy of the Landholders that gave us access to their properties for us to conduct this count. The area that we counted in as hill area surrounding Brobenah Hall, and Colinroobie Rd. In total we surveyed 8 sites from a possible 16 to 20 Dams that are adjacent to the Glossy Back Cockatoo (GBC) feeding area
In total there were 28 GBC sighted, including last season’s Juveniles as below.
As always there are many other birds and animals that will come in to drink at this time of the evening. The combined bird list from all sites is
