There are a few animals that stand out to represent Australia, and I would like to share some of them.
On a recent visit to Churingas B&B just outside of town as part of our surveys for "Bird Trails of Cooloola", we were lucky enough to see all of the following, plus lots more birds, 62 species in all.
Laughing Kookaburra (Dacelo novaeguineae)
Australian King-Parrot (Alisterus scapularis) (Female)
Australian King-Parrot (Male)
Eastern Grey Kangaroo (Macropus giganteus)
Platypus (Ornithorhynchus anatinus)
Will post more birds seen over the 2 days we were there soon.
