Sherwood Arboretum, Brisbane, bird watching information (map)

Sherwood arboretum is a small area that has been intensively birded for many years.  The list includes over 160 species.  It is known as a good place for crakes/rails and little bitterns, but none are not regular.  The ponds and the river are the best place to spend your time (see guide below).  A good place for beginners as 40 or more species can be easily seen in an hour.  If you see anything rare or new, please email me and I will add it to the list – h.possingham@uq.edu.au  .

This download provides a guide to how to watch birds at Sherwood Arboretum. A two hour visit will usually uncover about 50 species. Water birds are especially good if the region is dry. White-headed pigeon is a regular breeder from January to April.
