Spring - A time for young birds.

Due to family commitments and health concerns, I have been unable to keep up with blogs, though all now under control.
So it was good to be able to get away for a weekend of birding with members of Birds Queensland to Rainbow Waters Holiday Park, with visits to Inskip Point, Bullock Point, Mullen'sTin Can Bay Foreshore and the Noosa Plains for the Ground Parrot. 
I was the only person lucky enough to see one of these just twenty meters from where the others were sitting having Happy Hour while waiting for the Dusk Chorus of these elusive birds, during which five more were heard. We also had King Quail calling close by. While waiting, a flock of 40 plus Yellow-tailed Black-Cockatoo kept us entertained.
It must have been a good breeding season due to the amount of young birds and nesting birds we found during our travels over the weekend.
House Sparrow (Passer domesticus)(Juvenile)
Noisy Friarbird (Philemon corniculatus)(Juvenile)

Sulphur-crested Cockatoo (Cacatua galerita)(Immature)
