TMNHA Bird Walk 21st March 2009 - Clagirabar Conservation Park

Clagiraba Conservation Reserves stretch from Lower Beechmont plateau to Mt Nathan. The reserves provide a habitat linkage between the Hinze Dam catchment to the south, the Tamborine Plateau to the north-west and the vast tracts of Canungra forest through to Nerang State Forest to the north-west.

Our walk was through the section at Bellis Road, Clagiraba. The fine weather and variety of habitats provided a good bird list, 42 species. A male Cicadabird was definitely the bird of the day. A good sighting up close was a real treat as Cicadabirds are more often heard than seen.
