Bassian Thrush out in the open

One of four Bassian Thrush (Zoothera lunulata) along short stretch of Paluma Dam road yesterday.
Surprising to see them out in the open, even more surprising to find the species not previously listed in the area. 
No surprise to find Tooth-billed Bowerbird (Catbird) (Scenopoeetes dentirostris) in full 'song', though perhaps 'raucous voice' might be more accurate.
Nothing seems to keep them quiet for long.
Elsewhere, on fire trail behind Tyto Wetlands, Large-tailed Nightjar (Caprimulgus macrurus) sits undisturbed by bright lights and camera flashes in the night.

Last straw too much for Double-barred Finch

Townsville Common Cons. Pk, track to Jacana hide, today. Flew off a second later with lighter load.
