I loved seeing all these birds again as I had seen them when I was in Australia and one of my favorite birds was the Golden Whistler.

Excellent array of birds on the camp!

I've never managed to get good photos of the Shrike-tits (restless) and Little Lorikeets (wary in treetops) so these are impressive!
