Birds around Gheerulla

Hopefully things are getting back to normal; where has the year gone, nearly half way through 2017!

Gheerulla is an area near Kenilworth in the Sunshine Coast hinterland.
I have been trying to get a decent photo of the Rufous Fantail for many years, and at long last got one. The Rufous Fantail is not an easy bird to get photos of. They don't stay still for very long.
The Fan-tailed Cuckoo is a resident, while the Rose Robin has only recently arrived from the highlands and Southern regions. 
Rufous Fantail (Rhipidura rufifrons)
