Capricorn Yellow Chat

Capricorn Yellow Chat

Endangered under Queensland’s Nature Conservation Act 1992 and Critically Endangered under Australia’s Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999

With a wild population of less than 250 individuals, Capricorn Yellow Chats are elusive to find and any sightings should be reported to FBA.

Making its home in the grasses, samphire and reeds of Twelve Mile Creek just south of Rockhampton, on Stanage Peninsula to Rockhampton’s north, and on Curtis Island near Gladstone, a bright flash of yellow is typically all people ever see of this sparrow-sized bird. Find out more about what they eat, where they live and why they’re special here.
