Camp Birds Continued

More birds from the Birds Qld Camp, plus a Sand Goanna.
Rainbow Beach Holiday Park at Carlo and the surrounding area has a lot to offer. The Bush Stone-curlew look like they have made the Holiday Park there home. Teewah Creek on the Noosa Plains is a good spot to end the day looking for more birds while waiting for  dusk, and the Ground Parrot to begin calling.
Brown Honeyeater (Lichmera indistincta)
Bush Stone-curlew (Burhinus grallarius)
Tawny Frogmouth (Podargus strigoides)
Sand Goanna (Varanus gouldii)
Teewah Creek
For more Birds visit Wild Bird Wednesday

I almost stood on the first bush stone curlew I ever saw! What a great bird!

Very nice series! I would love to see any of those birds, especially the Tawny Frogmouth. Teewah Creek looks to be stained the color of tea, something we see in our local creeks due to tannin leached from trees along the bank.

Very cool variety of birds and images. I like the cute Stone-Curlew and I would love to see the Tawny Frogmouth in the wild. Enjoy your week!

Fabulous birds and I love the creek shot as well. Happy New Year. I am home now from my trip to Malawi but thanks for leaving me all the comments when I was away.

Definitely have to check where you put your feet so as not to step on those camouflaged curlews...

Great shots of the birds and creek, and I love that Goanna!

The patterns on the stone-curlews provide such amazing camouflage. Their bodies seem to run into each other.
