The Warrumbungles is a rugged area of ancient volcanic vent plugs of solid lava, where the original volcano has eroded away. A good area for birding, but again we were a bit unlucky with lots of wind and rain in the area, but we did see 67 bird species.
One of the birds we were after was the Glossy Black-Cockatoo which is fairly common in the she-oak forest area called Pilliga, just to the north-west of the Warrumbungles, but due to the massive overnight rain most roads were flooded and the forest tracks were far too boggy. Oh well, next time.
On a track just out of Capertee, we came across this Eastern Bearded Dragon (Pogona barbata) trying to get warm in the cold conditions.
A great looking lizard and a new reptile species for us.
