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.

Banjo Paterson (1889)

Birding North Queensland

It's almost Christmas and time for our annual end of year birding trip somewhere. This year it looks like it's going to be Thailand.

Here is a short video of some of last year's birding tour to the northern tip of Australia at Cape York. There was once until recently a nice metal plaque at the northern point, till some morons stole it. Now it's only a old car license plate with some writing on it!

The birds in the video are Red-bellied Pitta (the one bird everyone wants to see), Buff-breasted Paradise Kingfisher and Spectacled Monarch. An added bonus was a Spotted Cuscus out during the day.
