After heading north from Eringa, we made relatively slow [40kph] progress on some fairly rough roads towards New Crown Station. The Pedirka Track to Dalhousie Springs [a top birding spot] was closed. This meant that we would have to do an extra 180 km to visit. We decided not to, so kept heading north. The border between SA and NT was interesting for it's lack of features. Just a welcoming sign!
We turned off the Old South Road at Maryville Station and drove 40kms into the Chambers Pillar Historical Reserve. There is a 4WD-only jump-up about 20km out which gives a fabulous view of the country and the pillar.

The only birds photographed for the day were Zebra Finches Taeniopygia guttata by a bore. ZFs must have water daily and are never very far from it.
