Toowoombah to Maleny

Filed under: Birds — Tags: — admin @ 5:03 am

Blackall Range

Just north of Toowoombah, I headed east again and ended up at the Ravensbourne National Park.

Grey Fantail


Grey Fantail (Rhipidura albiscapa)

Going south again and I went for a walk around Kilcoy Wetland , situated in the middle of town at Yowie Park.

Australian White Ibis


Australian White Ibis (Threskiornis molucca)

The pink bare skin at the back of the head really stand out on this one.

Royal Spoonbill


Royal Spoonbill (Platalea regia)

In breeding plumage with the pink on the crown and the yellow patch above the eyes.

I stopped off at Lake Somerset, just off Westvale Road where I had a nice relaxing day sunbaking and reading a book. I went past Maleny which was chock a block full of people, and moved on to Fritz Park near Conoldale.

Red-browed Finch


Red-browed Finch (Neochmia temporalis temporalis)

Red-backed Fairy-wren


Red-backed Fairy-wren (Malurus melanocephalus)

My last stop was at Fig Tree Walk, just before Kenilworth.

Yellow-throated Scrubwren


Yellow-throated Scrubwren (Sericornis citreogularis)

I could not get rid of the red-eye from the flash. It was so dark. I do not like using flash but sometimes it is unavoidable.
