Birds at Goran Lake
Goran Lake is currently (as of April 2022) FULL.
At Goran Lake, an ephemeral lake about 30 km South of Gunnedah, NSW, the following bird species were spotted by us from April 2011 until now (Goran Lake filled up in the summer of 2011 and had water until spring 2013; next it filled in November/December 2021). Bird species are listed here in four categories, according to the timing of their sightings. In some cases the categorisation indicates a trend. We have visited only locations along the lake shore where there is open farmland, without other significant vegetation, beyond roadside weeds and low shrubs. Bird species that are listed as Vulnerable or Endangered, if any, are marked as such.
Goran Lake is listed as a "birding hotspot" on ebird.org .
