Yatte Yattah NR Bird Walk
Grade and Distance: - 2-3km return (2hrs) - easy grade to the powerlines, then difficult on rainforest tracks
Vegetation Types - diverse woodland, farmland, rainforest
What to look for:
Wonga Pigeons, Brown Cuckoo-Doves and Green Catbirds can usually be heard down in the rainforest. Topknot Pigeons often feed in the trees along the margins. Common small birds include thornbills, Brown and White-throated Gerygone, fairy-wrens and Black-faced Monarchs during spring and summer. White-winged Trillers and Satin Flycatchers have been seen here. A Spectacled Monarch has been recorded down in the rainforest. The eucalypt forest is a good location for Eastern Rosellas, not a common bird in this area.
An easily accessible reserve, 600 metres north of the Lake Conjola turnoff from the Princes Highway. Walk downhill through the gate, over one stile and 200 metres or so to another stile leading to the park signage. Continue downhill to the power lines. From here there are several tracks down into the rainforest gullies.
