Birds of the Vulkathunha-Gammon Ranges National Park
The Friends of Vulkathunha-Gammon Ranges National Park have produced a birdlife brochure to highlight the most commonly sighted birds in the Northern Flinders Ranges and the national park.
Available in boxes at walk trailheads in the park, the brochure includes photographs of 59 birds that may be seen in the area, along with distinguishing features, expected size and the Adnyamathanha name.
It includes hunting birds such as the Brown falcon (Adlanha) and Wedge-tailed eagle (Wildu); honeyeaters like the Singing honeyeater (Arndarnda) and the Yellow-throated Miner (Wilypu); birds found in creeks such as the Australian Ringneck parrot (Warturli), and the Black-faced Woodswallow (Valpulya); and birds found on plains such as Red-capped robins (Mali irta nha), White-winged fairywren (Yudu yudulya) and Emu (Warratyi).
The Friends of VGRNP received $5830 in the board’s 2022/23 Grassroot Grants program to produce the brochure to enrich the experience of park visitors.
