Ceri Pearce | Birds With Altitude Project Coordinator
The results are in. Our Wooroonooran Challenge competition winner is Delene van Dyk. Congratulations Delene!
The competition was part of BirdLife Northern Queensland’s Birds with Altitude Project, which aims to gather critical information about Wet Tropics endemic birds threatened by climate change.
Delene completed 18 Birdata compatible surveys (20 minute – 2-hectare searches, or 500 metre area searches) in Wooroonooran National Park between 1 September – 31 December 2022. She undertook repeat surveys at several locations, providing us and our partners, the Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service, with invaluable data.
Delene wins a copy of the newly minted Compact Australian Bird Guide by Davies et al. 2022.
Special thanks to all the competition participants. We now know a little more about Wooroonooran bird life.
