MALLEEFOWL NESTING, GLUEPOT RESERVE
Managed by BirdLife Australia, South Australia’s Gluepot Reserve has the nation’s largest area of protected mallee scrubland. Here, 50km north of the town of Waikerie, male malleefowl create large mound nests in late spring and early winter, into which females deposit eggs.
The reserve is also the place to spot the black-eared miner, one of the nation’s most endangered birds, as well as more than 100 other avian species. More info: Call the
