* We have seen quails, pardalotes, flycatchers and finches – but they don’t sit still long enough for us to positively identify which varieties of these birds are present on the property.
** Sightings of these species are not positively attested.
And, of course, if any visitors with better knowledge than we have identify species not listed above, let us know – and we’ll update the list with thanks!
Thanks to October guest Peter, who added 11 species to this list in a week!
