Jourama birds stay on after burnoff



Dawdled around Jourama Falls woodland and creek forest today after planned burnoff 'exceeded expectations'. Birdlife little affected: 33 species listed during my walk, including Lemon-bellied Flycatcher (Microeca flavigaster), though pictured bird was snapped nearer the coast yesterday.

Also from another day but again on show today, Rufous Fantail (Rhipidura rufifrons). Bird was following a Brush Turkey through the understorey at Jourama last week. The burnoff  was never a threat to this species, which seldom leaves the rainforest shadows.

Large-billed Gerygone (Gerygone magnirostris) seldom go far away from creek, naturally enough given they build their long skinny nests over water, Another bird from another day, but also seen today.
