Kamarooka Forest is part of the Greater Bendigo National Park. It is north of Bendigo and contains a variety of habitats and plenty of interesting sites for finding birds and animals. I recently spent a day exploring Kamarooka with a birding mate, John. I clocked up a new Vic lifer (312) as well – White Fronted Honeyeater. Along the way we found plenty of small birds and one that I have only seen a few times before – a White Bellied Cuckoo Shrike. One of our favourites was a Weebill, Australia’s smallest bird. We also tracked a bird call that neither of us had heard before and it turned out to be a Restless Flycatcher making a very unusual call – certainly one we had not heard before.
