The Bundarra-Barraba area is important for Regent Honeyeaters

The Bundarra-Barraba Important Bird Area lies in the Northern Tablelands of north-eastern New South Wales, Australia. It is important for the conservation of the endangered Regent Honeyeater and is classified as an Important Bird Area (IBA) by BirdLife International.

Description[edit]

The 3500 km2 IBA is roughly bounded by the towns of Bundarra, Barraba, Kingstown and Manilla, and their connecting roads. It is characterised by a mix of eucalypt woodlands and farmland.[1]

Birds[edit]

The IBA supports the second-largest population of the Regent Honeyeater as well as significant numbers of the near threatened Diamond Firetail. [1]
