The 2017 list is now up to 176 species. The April – May records are:

Atherton Tablelands
Nankeen Kestrel
Topknot Pigeon
Varied Triller
Sacred Kingfisher
Dusky Woodswallow

Kingfisher Park and Julatten area
Australian Bustard
Double-eyed (Macleay's) Fig-parrot
Eastern Koel
Little (Gould's) Bronze-cuckoo
Buff-breasted Paradise-kingfisher
Graceful Honeyeater
Red-backed Fairy-wren

Cooktown
White-winged Triller
Blue-winged Kookaburra

Northern Fantail
White-throated Honeyeater
Lemon-bellied Flycatcher
Lovely Fairy-Wren
Red-kneed Dotterel
Black-fronted Dotterel
Great Egret
Eastern Reef Egret
Pheasant Coucal

Obviously I've been late in spotting some of the really common species, such as nankeen kestrel, olive-backed sunbird and pheasant coucal. But these things happen.

If things go to plan, by the end of June, I should be well past 200 species. But I'm not going to count birds before they're ticked.
