Hi Millennium Kids.

My mum and I went Malleefowl monitoring with the Malleefowl Preservation Group on the 3rd October , 2020 at Merriden. It was amazing because we saw 2 Malleefowl’s that were near their nest, they were screeching to try and scare us away from their nest. We saw 3 active mounds that were in use by Malleefowl’s we visited in total 15!!!!!!

On the  mounds I saw fox  scats ,Malleefowl eggshells and scratchings and the COOLESt mystery ant that had an abdomen like a bee. It also had a red head with black eyes and wings. We also found a trap door spider nest.

Have a great week, Phoenix. MK Youth Board Member
