Early settlers cleared ninety percent of NSW woodlands to farm crops, meat and wool. Now concerned landowners have initiated the Cowra Woodland Birds Program to replant bush, fence existing bush, and monitor bird numbers. Woodland birds are seen at Conimbla National Park, Koorawatha Nature Reserve and Wyangala Dam and smaller well-treed bush remnants of the Lachlan river valley.
