Mixed Birds

A friend suggested we take a trip out to a little place called Oakview North West of Gympie to do some birding with him. This is some of the variety we came across during the afternoon outing. Thanks GP for a great spot of birding.

The red-backed Fairy Wrens are an exquisite capture as are the others where you even get them in pairs. Being a rank amateur, I too would love to go out with an experienced birder.

Lovely shots of these "exotic" (for us here in the U.S.) birds, Neil. I love the Red-browed Finch.

That Red-browed Finch is a cutie, and I really like the Red-backed Fairy Wren--even the name is cute.
