Birds at Jack's Creek State Forest

At the northern end of Jack's Creek State Forest, the place where we lived until October 2006, 20 km South of Narrabri, NSW, the following bird species were spotted by us. 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.

Bird species we have seen breeding on our property (with at least a photo of a nest or nest entrance) are marked with a clickable superscript "N", leading to the relevant breeding information.
