And the bush has friends to meet him, and their kindly voices greet him, In the murmur of the breezes and the river on its bars,
And he sees the vision splendid of the sunlit plains extended, And at night the wonderous glory of the everlasting stars.

Birding North Queensland 2

This is the second part of our birding holiday video which has some of the birds and environments my wife and I saw around the Cairns area. The birds are migratory waders, Little Egret, Brush-Turkey, Victoria's Riflebird, Rainbow Lorikeet, Metallic Starlings, Helmeted Friarbird, Orange-footed Scrubfowl, Olive-backed Sunbird (in it's sock-like nest) and Pied Monarch, as well as a Boyd's Forest Dragon.
