Birding around Brisbane, Queensland

All good birding trips start with food and friends...
Some of my favorite people offered us their hospitality and drove the car and showed us the birds. Many thanks to Aun Tiah, Siew Ping and Dr Smathi Chong
Good birding trips have very early starts. Geez, the sun gets up early in Qld...And include different habitats...

Including some that look familiar in this case. This photo could so have been taken in Malaysia...

It was great to be in a place where the infrastructure is well looked after. We visited Mary Cairncross Scenic Reserve, and several parts of Brisbane Park, plus odd stops to look at roadside ponds and fields etc around Nambour where we stayed the night.
And there's always someone who is looking the other way when a good bird drops by...

I was just thinking, your life list must be yards long.
