Birds in Deriah Aboriginal Area

Welcome sign at the entrance of Deriah Aboriginal Area

In December 2005, Deriah Forest - a former State Forest located on the western fringes of the Nandewar Range, and thus of Mount Kaputar NP (some 30 km East of Narrabri, NSW) - was converted into Deriah Aboriginal Area. The Gamilaraay people are kindly giving the public access to the area, which enables us to go bird-watching there.

The following bird species were spotted by us in Deriah Aboriginal Area in the years 2006-2009 and 2013-present. They are listed here in four categories, according to the timing of their sightings. In some cases the categorisation indicates a trend. Bird species that are listed as Vulnerable or Endangered are marked as such.

Deriah Aboriginal Area is listed as a "birding hotspot" on .
