Finch greets holiday horde


Parts of Broadwater State Forest are crowded with campers this Easter after being reopened for  the first time since Cyclone Yasi roared through in February 2011. Sadly, the rainforest boardwalk and circular track to a giant fig tree will remain closed for much longer.


So, from the edge of  the forest yesterday, Red-browed Finch (Neochmia temporalis) shows willingness to greet the holiday horde.


Took a bit a bush-bashing to catch this young Spectacled Monarch (Symposiarchus trivirgatus) chasing after prey.


Though there are Large-billed Scrubwren (Sericornis magnirostra) at Broadwater bird above was foraging higher up at Wallaman Falls the other day.


And following a day after previous post, here's a wonderful Wandering Whistling-Duck (Dendrocygna arcuata) in Tyto.
